Orana Wildlife Park
Orana Wildlife Park information
Orana describes itself as an 'open range zoo' and you'll know what they mean if you opt to jump in the cage for the lion encounter (an additional $45). There's an excellent, walk-through native-bird aviary, a nocturnal kiwi house, and a reptile exhibit featuring tuatara. Most of the 80-hectare grounds are devoted to Africana, including rhino, giraffe, zebras, cheetahs and even gorillas.
