Ko Tane is the South Island’s ONLY Maori Culture Performance and Hangi Dinner

  • Full interactive village
  • Kapahaka performance
  • 4 course dinner with hangi cooked mains
  •  

    In the village you will be shown the tools and skills of the Maori hunter, his cooking techniques, (your hangi dinner being lifted out of the ground) the games he played to pass away his day and traditional instruments used to communicate with his Gods.

    The 45 minute kapahaka performance includes action songs, poi dances, (long and short poi), haka, stick games, weapons displays and the opportunity to learn the poi and haka.

    Finally enjoy a four course dinner with hangi cooked mains served by the same performers that entertained you.

    Awesome evening learning about the Maori culture

    Food was great, and plentiful, dined next to the deer, learned so much about the culture and were thoroughly entertained! Highly recommend!

    The Welcome and Hangi

    I really enjoyed the experience of another culture and it was a great insight into the practices of the traditional owners of the land.

    Good experience

    The performance is pretty good but in quite a cold tent. Meal is served in wildlife centre cafe. Food was ok but plates were cold and nt time we got to buffet food was also cool.. and not a lot of lamb on offer. Enjoyable but not good value for money.

    Must do experience!

    The demonstration/ show/ dances were a wonderful insight, with explanations before and after each dance. Understanding what we were a part of made it more special and I’d recommend this experience to anyone and everyone. The staff were all wonderful and the meal was great, topped off by an opportunity to feed the deer after our main course; a really special touch.
