Tiritiri Matangi is a triumph of volunteer/conservation cooperation. Rare birds like the fabulous Saddleback are easy to spot, Hihi (Stichbird), Tui and Bellbird swarm around feeding station. And even the highly endangered Kokako can be spotted skipping across the forest canopy.

This trip was amazing in every way. A truly beautiful island where you are surrounded by some of NZs rarest birds. The real magic is the guides though. Fabulous people with a real love of what they do. If you are on the fence - book it! I will definitely be going back.

Enjoyed walking through the bush & seeing the seaviews. Guide was very knowledgeable not only about the bird life, but the history of the island & the plant life. This is a must if you love walking & nature

This is an excellent trip. We were very impresssed with the organisation, knowledge and enthusiasm of and by the volunteers. It was a busy day but this did not detract from the experience. However, I feel grateful to live locally as I will go back again in a different season.
