Takitumu Conservation Area

Nested in the south of Rarotonga is a small gem, the Takitumu Conservation Area (TCA). Its 155 acres of forest is replete with tangling vines, towering ferns and glistening, fast flowing streams from which peer large-clawed freshwater prawns. Most of all it’s the home of the Kakerori Rarotonga Monarch, a small grey flycatcher.

Getting There

To protect the reserve and contribute to the maintenance costs, including rat control, all visitors must join a guided tour. Contact Diverse Travel for information.
