Join one of our passionate and knowledgeable guides on a tour of the highlights of this ambitious conservation project.  Your guide will share stories about the predator fence and our conservation work here at Maungatautari. They will introduce you to the flowers, berries, fruit and fungi of the different seasons. Other highlights will include the chance to see North Island robins, tomtits, kākā, pōpokotea, bellbirds, hihi, tieke, fantails, kererū and wētā.

At the end of your tour you may like to check out our ancient rātā, explore the clearing where the curious kākā hang out, or go up the viewing tower for a unique perspective of the forest canopy from above. Continue your walk to take in the majesty of our indigenous forest and try to spot some of the many bird species that call the maunga home.  By booking on this tour your contribution helps Sanctuary Mountain® continue to protect the rare and endangered species that live wild on Maungatautari. A complimentary Sanctuary Explorer Pass is included and we invite you to continue exploring the forest at the end of the tour.

Please check at least 10 minutes before your tour at Manu Tīoriori visitor centre, where a face covering is required (unless medically exempt). Children under 12 years will not be required to wear a face covering.

Here you will pick up your Sanctuary Explorer Pass and visitor guide map and receive instructions as to where to meet your guide.
This is a 45-50 minute guided tour that usually finishes in the heart of Te Tūī ā Tāne southern enclosure. If you have limited time your guide may be able to accommodate a circular walking tour.
