When you have a visit from the world's only Alpine Parrot you have to take notice. This beautiful bird stopped in at our Alpine Cafe during our twilight Photography Safari last night. It is no surprise that the Kea is one of the smartest animals on the planet. Watch it try to get into the Chilly Bin on the roof of the truck. Incredible……. Thanks to our Photography guide #robbrown for this footage.

Lots to do in our wonderful town then head into those hills in the background…that's where our Wild Hills Safari takes you. Our exclusive Alpine Cafe is on that rounded ridge just to the right of the green tree (the one of the left). 99% of all Lake Wanaka locals have never been there as its on private land. Love to see you soon.

So here is the guiding team on our training/track work day last week. High in the mountains overlooking @lakewanaka. Great to have these enthusiastic guys onboard. I think the food testing at our Alpine Cafe was the highlight!!

We never know what we'll see on our #WildHillsSafari high over Lake Wanaka and today was no exception. Our first ever sighting of the rare and endangered New Zealand Kiwi!

Great to introduce George Scott, a recently retired Deer farmer to our guiding team. There is not much he doesn't know about farming and he makes a mighty good cuppa too!!

Very subtle @aurora here at Lake Wanaka last night which was visible to the naked eye. However thanks to that approaching cloud it didn't last…… Still amazing though. Thanks mother nature for your sky treats!!

We had a great day yesterday planting approximately 70 native trees on the shore of Lake Wanaka as part of our conservation efforts in association with Te Kakano Aotearoa Trust. Thanks to all who came along to help. It's a great feeling to be able to give back to our wonderful Wanaka community. Thanks also to @venuscoffee and @CheeryMaycafe for feeding us all.
