Orana Wildlife Park

Orana Wildlife Park is New Zealand's only open-range zoo, located on the outskirts of Christchurch. It opened in 1976, and is owned and operated by the Orana Wildlife Trust, a registered charity.It has more than 400 animals across 70 species. It is New Zealand's only open-range zoo, sitting on 80 hectares of land.

The park offers close encounters with some of it's animals, including hand-feeding the giraffes, and a lion encounter where you can ride through the lion reserve in a truck-mounted cage during feeding time. The keeper feeds the cats from within the vehicle, and they often jump on top of the cage, giving you a unique view of these magnificent animals. A minimum height of 1.4 meters is required.

The Park is fun filled activities like we will be put into cage and in safari where lions and tigers will be trying to enter the cage and u can hand feed them.Feeding the giraffe is also a major attraction for this zoo.

Orana Wildlife Park is open daily from 10.00am until 5.00pm
