Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari which is fondly known by locals as ‘the maunga’, is a very special place to visit due to the sheer enormity of the project, at 3400 hectares, the maunga is by far the largest pest-proof fenced project in the world. This extraordinary pest-proof fence is 47km long and offers a safe haven for many of New Zealand’s most endangered species including kiwi, takahē, tuatara and kaka. It’s location in the central North Island of mainland New Zealand makes this an accessible destination for visitors.
