New Zealand Birding Tour 2023 – 2nd Departure – 14 Days
25 October 2023 - 8 November 2023
Join us on our birding tour across beautiful New Zealand. Leaving from Auckland and ending in Invercargill, this 14-day tour covers both the North and South Islands and takes in all the best birding spots including we aim to visit such places as Tiritiri Matangi, Miranda, the Central Plateau and Pureora Forest, Manawatu Estuary, Kaikoura, the South Island mountains, Stewart & Ulva Islands, Twizel and Central Otago.
New Zealand has many unique bird species and we’ll be looking for representatives of the endemic families – kiwis, NZ parrots, NZ wrens, NZ wattlebirds, NZ creepers, and the stitchbird; in addition, expect species such as Wrybill, New Zealand pigeon, Keas, Kakas, Shags, Wekas and Tuis, Penguins, and even Bellbirds and a huge variety of seabirds – including Albatrosses – during a relaxed, bird-rich pelagic. Expect to see over 120 species: this trip is surely a treat that shouldn’t be missed!
The tour includes a relaxed, bird-rich pelagic trip; night-spotting for Kiwis; spectacular scenery; great camaraderie & good food. Optional add-ons available.
