Disapointed. Here for the kiwi feeding. A large group of tourist stood in front of the window. After 5min the nurse take off the kiwi. Then I was not able to see them. Still able to see the white kiwi it's why I dont put 1 star.



2 1/2 stars. Not really a lot to see here. Got a good look at white kiwi. It is the only kiwi there. Expected more things to look at.

Unfortunately we couldn't see the kiwi because of a power cut but go see the Kokako, he says his own name!
