Mitai Maori Village: Cultural Experience and Dinner Buffet

1. Mitai Maori Village: Cultural Experience and Dinner Buffet

Enter a Maori village in a natural bush setting and learn about their customs during an immersive cultural experience. Following pickup from your Rotorua accommodation, if option booked, get a warm meet and greet from a beautiful Maori maiden dressed in traditional attire. Learn the guidelines to enter the sacred site and select a chief from your group to represent those visiting the village. See warriors in traditional dress paddle an ancient warrior canoe down the Wai-o-whiro stream and marvel at glow worms in their natural habitat. Be captivated by the songs and dances of an entertaining concert, complete with the spine-tingling haka war dance. Watch as the hangi feast is removed from the earth-cooked oven, explore the art of ta moko (tattoo) and more.  Feast on a hot selection of succulent meats and poultry, vegetables and fresh salads, topped off with tempting desserts.

What people are saying about Rotorua

Kia Ora! Chief of the Waka Kiwi here. What an amazing experience! Can highly recommend this if you want to experience some of the Maori culture and learn about their ways. Everyone working here was so lovely and talented. Exceptional experience..

Really really amazing experience! Firstly I must thank felicity and Kim for ensuring the mixup I had was sorted out, so I could attend the dinner and experience. It was wonderful learning about Māori culture and the food/show was lovely.

Totally great insight into Maori culture. Very diverse. You get to meet a lot of great new people. Great food! However, in our opinion it was a bit too crowded. In a smaller group it would have been even nicer.

We found the evening entertaining and informative and the food was delicious.

the experience is amazing, recommended to everyone
