Paraparaumu Traveller Review - New Zealand Glamping - Kapiti Island Nature Tours
I and my husband stayed oneight on the island and learned all about their natural world. It was a great time with the whole team. We had an memorable time with the birdlife - especially with the cacas. It is a great adventure for all those who love the outdoors. There are many indigenous species of wild animals to be seen as a predator-free island.
Bellbird's Kereru Weka Hihi Stitchbird Whitehead Robins Takahe etc. and a high beam is a nocturnal stroll around the kiwi to see. Climbing to the summit of Kapiti, even the 85 year old and back. Accommodation at the north end of Kapiti with the most unbelievable accommodations, Malacky, John, Vicky and everyone else.
Nighttime kiwifruit spots after dinner and a glass of fine wines were a real eye-catcher. He was a few yards ahead of us. Malacky's understanding of the island's birdlife and story was unbelievable. It was a respectful escape and we felt priviledged to have had this unbelievable Ki-wi adventure.
