R&R to celebrate the End of the Year

Summer holidays are on the horizon. School will be out soon and with exams over, it’s time to celebrate the end of another school year!

Why not seize the moment for some well-deserved R&R, or the chance for special bonding with your son, daughter, grandchild, niece or nephew.

Two Ways to Celebrate End of the School Year

Poronui’s Retreat Package ticks all the R & R boxes and includes a full day of guided activities. Choose a favourite or learn something new!  Options include horse trekking, fishing, hunting, field archery, sporting clays, guided walks and mountain biking.  Stay at Poronui Lodge in a private cabin and join the Lodge table for country breakfasts and delicious dinners.

This package is NZ$2,590 and includes GST, two nights shared accommodation for two people at the Lodge, all meals, an open bar and one day of guided activities.
If you really want to get away from it all, try our Safari Camp Package for camping in STYLE. Some call it ‘glamping’, we consider it to be a genuine back country camping experience with a few luxuries to smooth the way. Sleep beside the bustling Mohaka River in stout canvas tents with timber floors.  Enjoy hot showers and other bathroom amenities. Tell stories around the campfire while toasting marshmallows on the embers, making expansive plans for the future while enjoying a glass of red under the stars!
This package is NZ$2,050 and includes GST, two nights accommodation for two people at the Safari Camp, all meals, an open bar and one full day of guided activities.

Why We Love the Wilderness

Spending time in the great outdoors can help you appreciate the beauty of nature and the simple things that so often go unnoticed in our busy city lifestyles. Maybe it’s simply having no cell phone access or screens to distract you from your surroundings.
Combine this with your companion's firsts – a fighting trout on the fly, twilight horse-ride through native bush, a shattered clay target or dawn hike in search of the elusive sika deer. Maybe an eel on a hand-line, or simply a walk in the pitch dark beneath a canopy of stars - easily visible with out the glare of city lights.
