Our last full day in New Zealand was quite busy. After waking at dawn in Arthur’s Pass we finished the two hour drive into Christchurch where our first stop was Orana Wildlife Park.
In the early days of planning the trip, Justin discovered this hidden gem and immediately made reservations, unbeknownst to rest of the party. When we arrived for our scheduled tour, Lyle was shocked to discover that we would participate in a lion feeding.
After sightseeing at the wildlife park, we checked into our hotel at Christchurch and prepared ourselves to travel to Australia the following day.
