New Zealand Birdwatching and Bird Photography Tours
Wrybill Birding Tours, NZ provide the best birding and bird photography tours in New Zealand. We are birders through and through, and provide a range of services to birders and photographers visiting New Zealand.
What started out as a couple of birding mates, Sav Saville and Brent Stephenson, making the decision to set up their own independent bird-guiding business has grown into one of the best birding operators in NZ. Recently we have enlisted the help of some other great New Zealand birders – Phil Hammond, Matt Jones, Neil Robertson and Wendy Hare & Nigel Milius, to help out with the demand.
As a specialist birding business we felt there was a need for real BIRDERS, who were based in New Zealand passionate about birding, really knew their birds and birding sites inside out with access to up-to-date information on the New Zealand birding scene.
We offer a range of different options;
21-day set departures – we have a range of dates for our regular birding tour, or if bird photography is your primary interest, then we also have a tour available. Numbers are limited to a maximum of eight plus a guide, and on our birding tour you can expect to see approximately 150 species, with around 60-65 of those being endemic breeders. You will also get to see much of the scenery that New Zealand has become famous Worldwide for!
We travel in a 12-seater minivan, staying in clean and comfortable Motel style accommodation, and eat evening meals in cafes and restaurants in the towns we stay. Breakfast is generally in our accommodation before we leave in the morning, and lunches are picnic style out in the places we hope to find birds.
Custom or Private Tours – if you would like a day or more in various parts of New Zealand during an independent trip around New Zealand, or want a personalised private tour, then you have come to the right place. The range of options available is unlimited.
Pelagic day trips – if you are wanting to incorporate a day on the ocean in various locations around New Zealand – the Seabird Capital of the World – then we have regular day trips at various ports around New Zealand.
Pre-trip planning advice – if you are planning an independent tour through New Zealand, and don’t know where to start, or want advice on where to go to see certain key endemics, or would like us to help plan a full itinerary for you, then let us know and we can make it happen.
If you have any queries regarding your next Birding adventure to New Zealand, please contact us via the enquiry form so we can get back in contact.
Whilst we do not offer conservation programmes, we are required to hold a Department of Conservation and Auckland Regional Council concession to operate on conservation land. As part of this some of your guiding fee goes back into the conservation and continued protection of these areas.
