Discover a quiet backwater sanctuary for kiwi birds. The small lake is home to the ECOED Kiwi recovery programme. The 6 ha lake and bush are surrounded by 3.2 km of predator proof fencing and kiwi chicks are raised here until they are large and strong enough to survive predators in the wild, when they are returned to the Kaweka Ranges or taken to the Cape.
Sanctuary at Cape Kidnappers. Walks
Discovery tours by arrangement between December to July.
The kiwi crèche is situated at Lake Opouahi Scenic Reserve, 9km inland from Tutira on the Napier to Wairoa highway (SH2), about 1 hour’s drive from Napier.
