North Island Brown Kiwi inhabit this area and we have a couple resident kiwis on Aroha Island. They can often be heard calling at night as they leave their burrows and forage the island by night.
Guests who stay on the island can take a self-guided walk at night to try and spot them in the wild. Our staff will advise you on where you might have the best chance of seeing them. Lots of patience and perseverance will give you the best chance of seeing these precious creatures in the wild.
Sometimes we offer guided walks to look for kiwi at night for an extra cost. This is dependent upon availability of guides and customer demand. Please enquire.
