Volunteering with Magic
Travelling New Zealand isn’t just about Scenery, Bungy Jumping and Sheep, nor is it all about unique wildlife and native forests – We believe it’s about experiencing ALL of this!
While you have your holiday of a lifetime in New Zealand why not add to this a meaningful volunteer project working directly with endangered Kiwi – New Zealand’s most famous native animal and national icon in a hands on conservation project designed to grow aid in breeding programs to ensure their survival.
Magic has partnered with Kuaka New Zealand to provide you some amazing volunteer options. Kuaka has over 30 years of experience providing meaningful education in this field and is Green Globe endorsed as a Travel education provider.
Magic and Kuaka have created the perfect tour for you to get involved!
Take a tour of the spectacular North Island of New Zealand by coach and train and you will experience all the beauty and adventure associated with this remarkable country. This is a 10 day package including 4 days volunteer work. This holiday will tick all the eco-friendly boxes.
Please Note: Tours depart on Saturdays only.
