About Orana Wildlife Park deals.
Set in 130 hectares, Orana Wildlife Park (Christchurch) is New Zealand’s only open range zoo and is home to over 1,000 animals from 90 different species. The Park specialises in providing amazing animal encounters to connect people with wildlife and motivate visitors to care about the plight of the world’s endangered species. Visitors will see NZ’s only gorillas, hand feed majestic giraffe, meet mighty rhino up close, observe kiwi, encounter mischievous kea and travel through the Lion Habitat (costs/conditions apply). Scheduled daily presentations mean visitors can enjoy the antics of our beautiful animals including painted dogs, cheetah, Tasmanian devils, friendly farmyard creatures, monkeys, meerkats and much more! Visitors can board our Safari Shuttle for a tour of the zoo or join a guided walkabout to explore the Park. Orana’s adventure playground is fun for young and old, especially the 50m flying fox! Our wildlife themed shop is stocked with fabulous gifts for any occasion.
Orana is operated as a registered charity. Over 95% of our income is generated through visitation and we separately raise 100% of funds for all developments, animal transfers and involvement in key conservation programmes. Park staff are proud to make genuine contributions to breed for release recovery programmes for threatened NZ native wildlife including kiwi, whio (blue duck), pāteke (brown teal), kākāriki karaka (orange-fronted parakeet), kōwaro (Canterbury mudfish) and Maud Island frog. By visiting the zoo, you are directly supporting our conservation work.
