Embark on a guided day or night walk through the Tiwai forest keeping an eye out for Diana and Colobus monkeys and take a break under Tiwai’s 200-year-old giant tree. The island also has up to 50 km of walking paths which you can explore on your own terms.
Head down the Moa River on a guided canoe tour, watching the birds fly overhead and keeping an eye out for monkeys and rare pygmy hippo. You’ll witness how the local villages interact with the river, seeing the handmade fishing traps on the bank and canoe ferries from one side of the river to the other.
At the tip of Tiwai’s northern edge lies a stretch of sandy beach where visitors can relax and swim in the fresh water during the drier season.
Meet the community members from the eight Tiwai Island communities who will perform cultural dances and share their unique traditions and heritage with guests on request.
