Experience the ancient feel of an old-growth, native forest protected from introduced pests by the world’s longest multi-species predator-proof fence. This is a guided tour at Sanctuary Mountain Manguatautari and includes general admission to the sanctuary before and after your tour.
Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari is a mainland ecological island. Surrounded by the world’s longest multi-species predator-proof fence, this ancient forest offers a sanctuary for populations of many of the most endangered species – from birds to bats, frogs to reptiles, tuatara to giant weta.
Step through the pest-proof gate into another world where ancient New Zealand forest towers majestically above well maintained walking tracks and the air is filled with birdsong. Experience the ancient feel of an old-growth, native forest protected from introduced pests by the world’s longest multi-species predator-proof fence.
Your guided forest walk will be enriched as you are accompanied by a passionate and knowledgeable guide who will share the stories of Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari with you as you explore the beautiful walking tracks of Te Tui a Tane - the Southern Enclosure.
Take in the majesty of this indigenous forest and try to spot the numerous bird species which make the maunga - mountain their home. Spend time in the clearing where k?k? like to hang out and take an optional walk up the viewing tower for a unique perspective of the forest canopy from above.
You will also have access to explore the sanctuary further at your own pace with an Explorer Pass as a part of your ticket cost.
You will be entering a biosecurity controlled area and will be required to abide by protocol to ensure the protection of the environment.
This experience takes place in Pukeatua, Waikato.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
