The tree tent activity allows you to set-up base off the ground in one of our comfortable tree tents.

Each of our tree tents has ample space for two people and their gear. We will provide you with enough covers, duvets, and pillows to be warm and comfortable. At the base of each tent, there is a picnic table and a waterproof box in which you can store your gear.

The tents are set-up in clearings which are between 50m and 200m away from the common living area. You are welcome to use the common living area, the relaxation room, and mingle with the explorers and volunteers that work in the sanctuary.

When not suspended above ground, you can choose one of the following activities:

  • explore the trails of our jungle-like forest and discover old-growth trees, wild vegetation, a string of waterfalls, and an area filled with glow worms
  • learn about New Zealand's trees and birds
  • learn about nature conservation in New Zealand
  • participate in conservation activities
  • visit the beautiful Kai Iwi Lakes
  • visit Tane Mahuta - a two thousand year old tree - and the Waipoua forest
  • climb the Tokatoka Peak
  • hike up the Maunganui Bluff to marvel at view of the endless golden beach

Not sure what to pick? It will be our pleasure to take the time and tell you about the sanctuary and advise about the sights that you can see in the forest or further afield.

Ready to have a bit of fun and to try something new? Make a reservation!
