Auckland Zoo Tour, Auckland (New Zealand)

The Auckland Zoo is a zoological garden which is standing in 40 acres of land in Auckland, New Zealand. It was opened on 17th December 1922 and did suffer many difficulties with health issues of animals in it, the same and some following years. A zoological society was formed by 1930 as by this time the zoo had collected a fair amount of animals in it. It has about 716,327 visitors annually.

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.

    Monika's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Due to corona spread all was locked down. We were forced by US govt to cancel further travel in the city. Request sent for refunding our money back. But not heard on it so far. Corona is the only memory

    Birinder Purba

    Birinder's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Overall a well organised trip of 16 nights in Newzealand that took us through both North and South Islands. Bella Vista Motel and Appartments at Christchurch is not suitably located near to a market and also rooms were very small. Milford Sound Cruise and 90 mile Beach Visit. Weather could be a spoil sport and our Franz Josep Glacier Walk & Kaikura Whale watching trips got cancelled.

    Tarun's 12 days trip to Auckland

    Raunak provided us with all that we required for our trip to New Zealand. He is energetic and was always ready to get us the best deals in our budget. Everything was taken care of before hand - car rentals, hotel booking, as well as reservations for our activities and we didn't have to worry about anything. There was a slight hiccup due to bad weather - some better planning could have been better. However the refund for the cancelled event was provided to me on time - so kudos for that. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend Wanderbird Holidays!

    Yug's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Raunak Pathak from Wanderbird Holidays was our agent from Travel Triangle for our trip to New Zealand. Raunak helped us plan with the best Itinerary, whether it was wrt the activities covered, hotels stayed or rental car selected. Everything was perfect. He ensured we are aware of all the rules or stuffz that are important for a tourist to know. It was never that we had to do any follow ups. The vouchers of hotel and activities were all received well before time. It was great of him to call us and discuss the itinerary in detail for an hour just before the trip ensuring we are well versed with the itinerary. His efforts showed he did a part greater than what an agent would generally do.

    Ashishjain's 7 days trip to Auckland

    It was overall a good experience. However, I would like to convey that Pickyourtrail has been really exceptional in ticketing, but in the planning of the overall trip it was poor. Follow-ups with the bookings and transfers that are required in any foreign trip was neglected, which I would consider as a big blunder from their end. I had faced issues like our vouchers being considered as incorrect in few of the places and in some, the agents to whom we were connected on the trip were not even aware of the booking. Their support team has a lot of people for sure but there is a lack of proper response from them. Our itinerary changes were not updated in the app which again created confusion for their support team who were not even aware of the changes. At the end of the day, there is only one person who gives the right directions and the rest of them just create confusion. I would give another shot in travelling with them only if they decide to go up a notch with travel planning rather than just giving us the tickets/vouchers. Just putting in my honest feedback, Thanks!

    Shilpi's 9 days trip to Auckland

    Went for a vacation to North Island in New Zealand in Feb 2020. Wanderbird Holidays were of great help in planning the week long trip. All information and suggestions provided by them regarding hotels, activities, cost, location etc was so accurate, I felt as if they are sitting in NZ and planning my trip for me. Raunak even helped me adjust the budget in ways so that I don't end up wasting money. Highly recommended!

    Manoj's 7 days trip to Auckland

    It was indeed an amazing experience as it has to be because it’s Newzealand. A paradise for Nature Loving people. And when you have a backup team of agents like Globe Trotting, you travel carefree. We had experienced all the climates there in the world in short trip to Newzealand. The Scenic Beauty while traveling from Queenstown to Milford Sound was breathtaking.
