Description

Experience the authentic Tamaki Maori village nestled in the lush Rotorua forest. Discover the unique culture, customs and traditions of the Maori people, then feast on a delicious Hangi-cooked meal and witness the traditional Maori war cry, the famous Haka dance.

Upon arrival at the Tamaki Maori village, get a taste of what the evening holds as you watch the powhiri – an ancient welcoming ceremony. Participate in traditions from days gone by, haka poi, & warrior training, observe the arts of caving & facial tattooing.

The appointed chief unearths your dinner, which has been carefully packed in baskets and placed below hot stones in the Hangi pit. Indulge in a time-honoured Maori practise, the sharing of food, with this delicious feast featuring prime New Zealand lamb, vegetables, seafood, mouth-watering desserts, and more.

At the ancestral Meeting House, Maori performers entertain you with action songs, the Poi dance and the famous Haka – a Maori war dance with vigorous movements, stamping of the feet and facial contortions that reveal the whites of the eyes while the dancers stick out their tongues.

The evening ends with the Poroporoaki closing ceremony, featuring wonderful Waiata (songs) and Whaikorero (speeches).

The start of the night was excellent, the information sessions were great and the show before dinner was very entertaining. The dinner was very good. The only thing was it felt a bit rushed between dinner and dessert.
