History about Auckland Zoo

The beautiful Auckland Zoo opened in the year 1922. In the earlier phases, the zoo experienced difficulties due to animal health issues. These elements were taken care of with time and by 1930, the zoo had a sizeable collection of animals. A zoological society was formed as well to upkeep the functioning of the zoo and taking care of animals’ health. The zoo attained consolidation during the time of World War II and came under the leadership of Lt. Col. Sawer. The collection of the animals expanded after the war got done with. The zoo started acquiring chimpanzees by the 1950s which ceased eventually by the year 1964. The Western Springs Park that was situated adjacent to the zoo also got acquired and became a part of the zoo in the year 1973. From the late 1980s to the present times, many exhibits were introduced and also removed from time to time. The zoo opened its largest development Te Wao Nui in the year 2011. This section exhibits New Zealand’s native flora and fauna. That’s how the zoo has evolved over the ages since the time of its inception.

Our’s was a 12 day 11 night trip to Europe covering Paris and Italy. The trip was very well organised and planned. We had received all the vouchers and details well in advance.

    Rahul's 7 days trip to Auckland

    The support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.

    Abhijit's 8 days trip to Auckland

    We recently visited Switzerland and Austria through Travel Triangle for our honeymoon. Rohit from HubHolidays (one of the agent of Travel Triangle) designed our itinerary. To begin with i would say i was little skeptical going with Travel Triangle as this was my first trip with them and none of my acquaintance had gone with them. However our trip went smoothly thanks to Rohit who was there to help us at any time, be it day/night. All the hotels and sightseeing tickets were handed over to us well in advance which helped us to understand how we will be moving from one place to other. We lost our 1 day because of the airline problem but Rohit and Prashant helped us cover our entire itinerary despite loss of one valuable day. All in all i would say everything was crafted to perfection be it the itinerary or the hotel rooms or the sightseeing. We were delighted as all the things which were promised at the time of booking the tour were delivered. Once again heartfelt thanks to Rohit for all the support extended. Regards Abhijit and Apurva

    Abhash's 7 days trip to Auckland

    The trip was great. New Zealand a must place to visit. Experience with travel triangle was not great. Basically they work as a intermediary with travel agent and only to bring them on a platform. Don't expect any follow up or support from TT in case of concerns or delays, you need to separately follow up with agent. My personal experience was not good with TT, I never received a call to update status of anything right from booking of trip to issuance of Visa or ticket and I had to call them for all updates. Also, you would need to give them multiple reminder calls. South Island is the place to be. We enjoyed it the most

    The overall trip was good, it was well planned by the tour operator, all the documents for trip were given to us which made us little relax during trip, best part was these people were always in touch with us during the trip, few hotels given to us were really awesome but at few places, it could have been slightly better, it was a great memory for us, really Happy. best memories will be Jungfrau in Switzerland and sunset in Santorini
