The boat now brought us to the north end of the island, where the land and lodge of the whanau of Kapiti Island Nature Tours is located. Arriving there, we were warmly welcomed by the local family and headed to the beautifully located lodge. With our guide for that evening and the next day, we sat down with some tea and coffee as he explained a bit more about this part of the island.
We loved the whole atmosphere at this place so much! We were really just staying at a local families place and therefore, it didn't really feel like a 'lodge', it felt more like we were in a home of the family. Those things are actually what we really love and are always looking for while traveling. We really love to experience local culture and to experience the more hidden, local places and we think you can't do that better than here with Kapiti Island Nature Tours!
That weekend we were supposed to sleep in a luxurious glamping tent, but because it was already winter and getting pretty cold at night the family suggested it would be better to sleep in a cabin for the night. We agreed with that, as we are not fans of the cold, and the cabin was also very beautiful and cute!
