We saw the conservation show which was very informative and entertaining. The best part was literally seeing the kiwi birds! We should all come and visit this park in order to support their effort in conservation work!!!

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, you will need to purchase your gondola and Kiwi Birdlife Park tickets separately as we no longer offer the Kiwi Kombo. We hope that you are able to visit our Park :)
