If you only have a short time in Wanaka, then this must be on top of the list. If you are in Wanaka for a while and don't do the trip to Mou Waho island, then big mistake. This was the highlight of a trip to Wanaka, made so not just by the chance to visit Mou Waho and see the rare Buff Weka and boss bird "Wally", but also by experiencing the knowledge and care of guide Chris Riley, He knows his stuff; expert naturalist, historian, weather watcher and boatman. We've both worked in Antarctica and was also a great chance to share stories. The weather was marginal, but that's part of the whole New Zealand experience and the threatening clouds only enhanced the photos. I would rate the trip a 6 out 5. Chris, many thanks for a top day - from K&G.
