What you'll do

Join me for an interactive, educational and fun nature safari exploring life and landscapes and conservation projects in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

I'll take you off the beaten trail, away from the crowds to see everyday life on a real farm, see things that most people never experience like sheep shearing.

I'll introduce you to the world's only alpine parrot the Kea, that only lives in the mountains of New Zealand. I'll
highlight the challenges we face with loosing our native birds and most importantly, you'll learn about our conservation effort to save them.

From individuals, families, student groups, corporates or your team of workmates, This is the perfect experience for anyone with an interest in New Zealand nature.

If you don't find a time that suits, drop me a line and I'll create one to suit.

I can't wait to meet you for a real New Zealand Nature Safari.



See you soon.

I liked the virtual Tour with Mark through New Zealand and his beautiful home, as well as insights into the native wildlife and the efforts to preserve it. The quiz questions are fun too. Thank you so much Mark and hope to see you in real life soon 😁

Mark and Sandrine were absolutely lovely. They have a very nice presentation and cover a lot about their area of New Zealand. We had a really great time with our work off-site

The videos and Mark's insights about Wanaka, farm life and conservation work made for a really great virtual visit to NZ! It felt like you would step through the screen and into NZ! Mark is a great host and very easy to talk to. Highly recommend this online experience!
