Walk with Ken Tustin – Fiordland’s ‘Moose Man’

Ken Tustin, wild animal ecology scientist and nature guide has been announced as the third ‘celebrity’ walker on the Hump Ridge Track themed Celebrity Walk Week in March 2011.

Ken has spent years in the Fiordland bush, many of them trying to confirm the existence of Moose. His passion for Fiordland, it’s landscape, history and wildlife has also had him nature guiding on Real Journeys “Discovery” cruises each winter.

Celebrity Walk Week is an annual fundraiser for the Tuatapere Hump Track Trust – the charitable trust that manages the track. All money raised goes into track and facility upgrading.

“I’m delighted my wife Marg and I are taking part in the 2011 Hump Ridge Celebrity walk!”

Celebrity Walk Week participants can have their packs flown between lodges, a hot shower when they arrive and a gourmet meal cooked for them each night.

The walk is priced at only $995pp (the best value, three-day guided walk in Fiordland) and places are expected to fill up fast as additional celebrity guides are announced.
