Te Mata Aho

This very special package provides the ultimate Māori cultural experience. It allows one to totally escape modern living and become at one with Papatūānuku (the natural environment). A relaxing visit that allows you to experience all the area has to offer, including extended bush walks, picnic lunches and other Māori experiences

An extended stay in the rustic Tamau Pā and its exquisite natural surroundings makes the stresses and strains of everyday life disappear. You will learn about Māori culture, embrace a simpler way of natural living and become at one with the land.

Enjoy Māori and European cuisine and take the time to learn more about the area, and your hosts the Ngati Tuwharetoa people.

At night, sit around the open fire and listen to Māori stories and legends. Away from city lights, you'll be amazed at the night sky. Night owls are invited to explore the area after dark with Tom. Perhaps try the traditional Māori way of snaring an eel for the smoker box for breakfast.

Ideal for couples or groups of up to 8 people. Choose your date - we'll be there to welcome you.

Experience a unique cultural experience.
