New Zealand 'provides rare sights'

Article content

17 November 2009

New Zealand travel could offer holidaymakers the chance to see a variety of rarely-seen sights, it has been claimed.

Daily Telegraph writer Sue Attwood noted that the Kapita Island bird sanctuary is "strictly limited" in terms of visitor numbers, but those who do get to enjoy the experience will not forget it.

She stated: "It's like arriving at Jurassic Park. The island is green and mountainous and as soon as the ferry's motor is turned off, the sound of birdsong hits you."

According to Ms Attwood, she spotted a takahe while receiving the introductory talk from a warden, with the red-beaked flightless bird having a worldwide population of approximately 250.

Saddlebacks, stitchbirds, kakas, kokaos and wekas were also part of the tour, with the journalist calling Kapita Island a location of "world importance".

A Daily Telegraph reader recently extolled the virtues of a New Zealand holiday.

Kate Green, who visited the North and South Island with her husband, highlighted swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura as a "total delight".ADNFCR-2704-ID-19464764-ADNFCR
