The Kahukiwi Experience

Embark on a heartfelt journey like no other via luxury 4X4 and discover the essence of Maori culture with our fully guided, 3-hour Kahukiwi Experience.




Explore our rich heritage and feel the warm embrace of our people on this small group cultural tour. In our luxury Range Rover vehicle, you’ll journey deep into our ‘turangawaewae’ – our Place, located on the shores of Lake Rotoiti – learning about the history, stories and spiritual essence of our people, the Ngati Pikiao tribe.

You’ll love getting to know your passionate, highly knowledgeable Maori guide. Part of our wider whanau (family), our Kahukiwi guides are leaders in cultural storytelling. They’ll show you where our tupuna (ancestors) lived, tell you the stories of years gone by, and share with you what makes our culture and way of life so unique.

Come and discover this unique area of Rotorua, only 20 minutes from the city.
