Welcome to Ko Tane Living Maori Village at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch. Where Maori culture and conservation meet to give a unique glimpse into the way of life of the South Island Ngai Tahu Maori people before the arrival of the Europeans.
Ko Tane is the South Island’s only Maori Cultural Performance including Maori Haka and Hangi Dinner Experience. Maori had a well-developed cultural tradition of martial arts, song, dance and games. As well as a profound spiritual understanding of the world through oral tradition, ritual and legend.
Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is home to over 100 wildlife species, some of which have been brought back from near extinction. Native species held at Willowbank include kiwi, tuatara, takahe, kea, wood pigeon, falcon, gecko, weka, morepork and the endangered blue duck.
Willowbank is the only reserve in the world where you can view breeding pairs of North Island brown kiwi outdoors. Your guide will help locate kiwi using a special low-light torch.
The Maori Experience includes a Maori Welcome, Maori Village Tour, Maori Interactive Performance (including Maori Haka) and Four Course Hangi Dinner.
