    Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
    Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
    When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
    Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was an amazing Kiwi encounter experience! My husband and I were treated to this from family members who raved about it. We visited the reserve and got to learn all about the Kiwi bird, its habitat, why its a protected species and all the fun facts about this species native to New Zealand. We were guided to the enclosure where we were told to be so totally quiet so as to not disrupt the birds or they would hide for the remainder of the night. After a while we suddenly see this nocturnal species make their appearance! We got to see them right up close and they were sniffing out food in the ground with their huge long noses! We had to stay silent but you could see the joy on everyone's faces when they appeared. After enjoying watching them walk around their home, it was time to go. Excellent experience all around, well guided, and such a cool thing to see the Kiwi bird in real life!
