South Island Birding and Wildlife Tour


South Island Birding and Wildlife Tour

New Zealand is home to some of the rarest and most unique birds on earth. With a stunning backdrop of golden bays, vast wetlands, mountain ranges and ancient forests, you'll travel the full length of the South Island for unforgettable encounters with our best-loved and most endangered species in their natural habitats.

Among the amazing birds you will meet are the world's largest (and drunkest) pigeon, cheeky alpine parrots, shy and retiring hoiho (yellow-crested penguin), operatic Tui, and tiny New Zealand robins who dance around your feet. Complemented with a soundtrack of our incredible songbirds, you'll never want this movie to end.

First Light Travel is a first-class operation. From beginning to end everything was perfect. Even when the weather caused problems, Shelley was there to make a smooth change in plans that was perfect. Always in touch and making a special effort to make sure we were happy.

For a stress and worry-free vacation you can't beat First Light!
