Twilight Tours Logo

Experience ZEALANDIA as it transforms from daylight to twilight during this special guided experience.  See birds returning to the sanctuary to settle into their nests, the sight of the evening sky, and the changing sounds of birds from day to night and perhaps even experience the first sounds of the nocturnal birds, such as kiwi and ruru (morepork) as they wake.
