Just spent 3 nights at bush camp with Jo and his team. All well organised. A wonderful way to see a very special p[art of our country. I felt quite privileged to be experiencing this with them,

We had a wonderful experience at the Te Urewera Bush Camp. Joe's hospitality is great, he made us a delicious diner and made us feel at home in the bush. Great stories about the Maori and his own tribe.
Planted trees in the morning after a very good breakfast and made a nice walk in the forest.
We enjoyed the stay in the bush camp and the company of Joe very much. Thanks again!

We did the tree planting trek and it was a great experience. Driving the car and walking in the forest, Joe told us all kind of things that made us know more about nature, the Maori people and their tight relationship. It was a real feel good day and the place we planted the trees turned out to be a great surprise to us. Find it out yourself!

We were on Te Urewera Treks for two days and made wonderful walks: in a podocarp forest and a beech forest. Our guide knew a lot about nature and of course about moari culture. Everything was very well organised. It was a real maori experience to us.

Our guide (Jo) tells the stories about the Maori way of life whilst walking in the forest. We felt like Maori, an unforgettable experience. The lunch in the tent camp prepared by his wife (Joe) was very tasteful, which made us even more Maori.

I thoroughly enjoyed the guided day walk I did with Te Urewera Treks. I learnt a lot about Maori culture and the ecosystem of the beautiful Whirinaki Forest. Lunch was delicious and the dip in the hot water pool after the walk was also great.
