We spent an evening at the Mitai Maori cultural village where we experienced a traditional cooked Hangi meal (cooked in the ground), Maori cultural performance, a Haka, and visited the local sacred springs.

After visiting the Maori village we went to see the Kiwi’s at Rainbow Springs. These are nocturnal animals so couldn’t take any photos….but here is a picture of the Kiwi’s we saw.
