An alternative to conventional zoo experiences, Staglands Wildlife Reserve offers visitors the exciting opportunity to connect with nature in a beautiful, natural environment.

The 10 hectare (24 acre) reserve features picturesque hills, streams, valleys, and ponds, developed carefully over the last 40 years. Walk through aviaries filled with twittering birds, feed cuddly kunekune piglets, discover the hardships of early settlers at a recreated frontier town, or enjoy a picnic surrounded by New Zealand's lush natural scenery. Located inside a traditional log building, the reserve cafe features outdoor seating areas and serves light meals and beverages.
