This tour usually runs for 8 hours (dependant on weather) and highlights many of the best features of New Zealand's stunning Catlins region; including a huge array of native and wading birds, along with an in depth narrative of the region's natural history. Included as part of this wonderful tour is a country picnic style breakfast and lunch.

Our local guide has 20 years' wildlife experience and has knowledge which is sure to impress, coupled with the ability to tell a great yarn when describing the region's natural history.
