Sanctuary Mountain is New Zealand’s largest mainland ecological island, located in the North Island south of Cambridge. It is as close to a prehistoric New Zealand environment as you will find.

 It is surrounded by one of the world’s longest pest-proof fences.  Sanctuary Mountain’s ancient forest offers a sanctuary for populations of many of our most endangered species such as birds, skinks, geckos, frogs, bats, and insects. It’s within  this pest-free environment many of our rarest native creatures flourish.

With this gift you enjoy a seasonal highlights tour of this ambitious conservation project.

Your guide will identify some of the local flora and fauna and share stories about the conservation work of Sanctuary Mountain.
