Rotokare Night Tours

Rotokare Night Tours


"Rotokare By Night" is a seasonal series of Night Tours that showcase the Reserve in a way you'll have never experienced before! Join our seasoned tour guides on a journey into the dark, exploring our native forests after sundown. Meet beady-eyed moreporks, hear scuttling wēta on the forest floor, discover hidden treasures in our glow worm hideouts, smell kiwi poop upon the air, and spotlight for tuna (eels) and banded kōkopu in our meandering streams. 


Tours take place at Rotokare from 6pm - 9pm. Ticket costs are $10 per adult / $5 per child, payable online or in cash. For bookings, contact us at: 06 764 8500 or
