Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Rotoiti-i-kitea-e-Ihenga (Lake Rotoiti), Kahukiwi Experiences is just a 15-minute drive from central Rotorua and close to the Kaituna River that flows over the beautiful Okere Falls.
Our pepeha describes who we are, and where we come from. We stand as Ngāti Pikiao, an iwi of the confederation of local Te Arawa tribes, announcing our tribal canoe, sacred mountain, lake and river.
