This walk has got a lot going on for it. After 20 minutes there is a small lookout, but if you continue for another hour further uphill you will arrive at the walk lookout. Stunning and diverse scenery dominate Okarito. Tidal estuaries and lagoons, windswept coastline sea cliffs, lush rain forest and magnificent views of the Southern Alps, Ka Tiritiri o te Moana. Thousands of native birds make this place their home. Spot White Heron (Kotuku) and royal spoonbills.
PERFECT!! Great staff and so so helpful and friendly, Car was perfect. Pick up and drop off shuttle easy to use/spot and very fast. I would highly recommend this company and have used a few different ones in NZ but this is by far the best with the best staff, Especially the lovely ladies on the front counter. Great staff makes the world of difference.Vicki Lim
