Award winning Hawke’s Bay Tours. Discover the real New Zealand.
Our private and personal guided NZ Maori tours just outside Napier Hawkes Bay allow you to discover the real story of traditional Māori people. Each of our Maori tours brings you into our world in an easy and casual way while also following our traditions. We invite you to take an intimate and spiritual journey with our family through the lives of the Waimarama tribe as we share our daily lives and history.
We live our lives according to the principles of kaitiakitanga – a way of managing ourselves and the environment based on the traditional Māori view. As guardians of our land we have created the 62-hectare Hakikino Conservation Reserve to protect the historical birthplace of our tribe. We are the guardians of this old lifestyle, and we want to keep it alive for future generations. Our tours are intimate, intellectual and spiritual. All of our tours are private, personal and relaxed. Get to know our family and feel the power of our private sacred native landscape.
One of the most authentic experiences of living Maori culture and heritage in New Zealand.
My first taste of Maori values and life style.
An excellent introduction to Maori history and how the people are trying to honor the past through their current lives. The family presenting the attraction is obviously proud of their heritage and happy to share it with all travelers. I was impressed with the children, who ranged in age from 12 – abt 18.
They truly understand, appreciate and love their heritage. Linda. S
