A fantastic place to visit! Our 2, 6 year olds had an amazing couple of hours. The highlight of their visit was petting 2 week old kittens and a land tortoise. Anne, your host is incredibly generous with her time, very knowledgeable and clearly loves her animals.

Thank Anna M

You get to see ostrich ,emu, cows, pigs, llamas, alpacas, ponies, possibly the smallest caw in the world. The animals are friendly and you get nice photo ops.

This farm looks really nice from "outside", lot of sweet animals and big birds...we decided to stop and buy an ostrich egg on our way to the south but unfortunately no one was at home. As there wasn't any another possibility to have such an ostrich experience nowhere during our NZ trip we went through Waitomo again on our way back to Auckland, however we didn't have any luck again, once again "no one at home". Therefore I would recommend to call first before you plane your trip :).

Stayed here in August for a night B & B whilst up in Waitomo for the Kiwi Cave Rafting tour, it is so worth staying there, a lovely family run accommodation with comfortable facilities. We stayed in one of the cottages, the beds were the most comfy I have ever slept in and I had a great nights sleep, breakfast was amazing! Home made bread, ostrich egg omelette, fruit, waffles, cream and more, so delicious. Ann made us very welcome as did her dog Pippi, the cats and Victoria the ostrich. I would recommend you staying here and enjoy the Kiwi hospitality in beautiful surroundings.

Thank Barbie M
