When we arrived we been given the protective long jackets and waited for our turn for the guided tour in an 8 wheel all terrain vehicle around the muddy land. The tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable and provided a great tour. We were able to see many seals from very close distance. You will be taken to these... More

The drive up to natures wonders naturally is doable in a campervan. As it was the winter season it was just me and my mum wanting to do a tour and they had no issues just taking 2 people out. Before setting of, we where given coats to keep us clean and our guide gave us some information about what... More

Loved it! Went with my friend and the baby seals are so inquisitive and come very upclose! Saw a yellow eyed penguin in the distance, no blue penguins but I don't think it is the season. Staff gave loads of information and were very helpful thanks for a great trip it's a beautiful place!

Location promised much but unfortunately the rude, unhelpful staff and poor standard of food in cafe made this a place we decided not to take a tour at. Disappointing.

There were 4 adults in our group. We all loved it. The views of Otago Penninsula are beautiful but the highlight were the seals. We saw so many and we were so close we could almost touch them, and plenty of them frolicking in the sun. The penguins were a little harder to spot, but our guide Brett was patient... More

We rode in an 8 wheel all terrain vehicle around the property to view beautiful scenery and wildlife. The owner, Perry, and tour guide were very friendly and knowledgeable and provided a great tour. We were able to see seals from only a few feet away, but only saw penguins from afar. Riding in the all terrain vehicle was a... More

The distinctly cold, abrasive and unacceptable welcome received when we arrived was more than enough to put us off taking a tour. Our questions were answered abruptly and without any hint of willingness. There is no need for such a tourist facility to behave in this way when they need our revenue to continue operating. If they want to close... More

Welcomed with a friendly greeting, provided with jackets so our clothes remained clean and then off on a vehicle to experience some breath taking scenery. We were taken on an 8 wheel drive buggy trek for an hour by Perry Dundee Reid, the owner, a farmer and an avid conservationist. Along with his son and all the boys he used... More

Welcomed with a friendly greeting, provided with jackets so our clothes remained clean and then off on a vehicle to experience some breath taking scenery, a colony of NZ Fur seals and then penguin spotting accompanied by a really friendly & knowledgeable guide. Well worth the drive out of Dunedin

Nature's Own is located on a family farm at the tip of the Otago Peninsular, a pleasant 40 minute drive from downtown Dunedin. Our 14 year old son is a nature lover and this visit was his highlight of a brilliant visit to a spectacular country. We were taken on an 8 wheel drive Banana Splits buggy trek for an... More
