Animal Encounters Tours in Rotorua, New Zealand

At JTR Tours, our animal encounters tours from Rotorua are an experience you will never forget. They are suitable for people of all ages, with children and families in particular enjoying the experience of encountering and learning about the animals that are so important to our great country.

After we pick you up from your location in Rotorua, your first stop is Agrodome, a unique farming experience that offers an excellent insight into agriculture and farming in New Zealand.

Agrodome has a world-famous farm show that includes a sheep shearing demonstration where you will also see the farm dogs work the sheep. There is also a live dog trial you can watch, plus you can see 19 differed breeds of sheep.

In addition to the farm show, there are hands-on experiences that include cow milking and feeding lambs. You can also visit the nursery to see the newest additions to the farm.

You will also be taken on a guided tour of the farm. It’s a working farm, so you will see many farm animals along the way. The tour includes the kiwifruit orchard where you can taste this delicious fruit as well as honey from the farm.

We’ll then take you to your second location, Rainbow Springs, an amazing Kiwi wildlife park. Here you will see many animals natural to New Zealand including lizards, kiwi birds, and more. There is also an exotic bird show as well as plenty of opportunities to learn about conservation in New Zealand.

Plus, you can go on the Big Splash Ride, a nine-minute exciting ride that includes learning experiences.
