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.
