Poronui offers 16,000 acres of the best wilderness experiences in New Zealand. The property is a historic fly fishing lodge, hunting lodge, wilderness retreat and gourmet delight. A playground for world class country pursuits including horse riding, mountain biking, archery, target shooting and trout fishing.

The luxury accommodation consists of The Lodge, with seven individually appointed guest cabins, overlooking the Taharua River. The Blake house, comfortably sleeping four adults plus children, offers seclusion and is taken on an exclusive basis with a team of house keeping and chefs.

For the true outdoors, take a glamping experience at the Safari Camp.Two guest tents are located on the riverbank. Dine under the stars, with a private chef delivering gourmet food and wine beside the campfire.

why we like it

If time allows spend a few nights at the Safari Camp. Wonderfully isolated, where the sound of rushing waterfalls, the crackle of the fire and delicious meals by candle light sets the scene.


The fishing guides have incredible hunting and fishing skills and know all the secret spots. The chef will teach you to cook what you catch - a true forest to fork experience. 

Horse riding tuition is second to none. Horse ride through the ancient Maori forests or skeet shooting is high on the list of must dos in a world class facility.
