Safari Camp at Poronui
Our luxury Safari Camp offers an authentic outdoor experience without sacriﬁcing the pleasures and comforts to which you’re accustomed. The original Poronui anglers trekked through 20 km of almost impenetrable country to camp beside the Mohaka River and match their wits against the wily trout. While our Safari Camp is far more accessible and luxurious, it offers an experience reminiscent of those Poronui pioneers.
You’ll still enjoy the same ﬂy-ﬁshing challenge, the same sparkling Mohaka waters at your tent door, and the same earthy pleasures of a hearty meal eaten around a campﬁre. But you don’t need to forsake civilization.
The camp includes two accommodation tents and a separate amenities tent, and while your tent has a canvas roof, the walls and ﬂoor are timber, providing stout protection from the elements whatever the season.
You can prepare meals ﬁt for a king on gas-powered hotplates and enjoy a rejuvenating shower under steaming hot water. You could also choose to have all meals fully catered by our Lodge kitchen.
And at the end of an invigorating day, you can rest your weary bones between crisp cotton sheets in a Queen size bed and soak up the essence of Poronui.
Even guests who reside at the Lodge or Blake House will often want to complete their experience – and acknowledge their debt to those Poronui path-ﬁnders – by spending an evening under the stars down at Safari Camp.
