Our smaller Kowhai tent is the perfect glamping getaway for couples. The tent has two rooms, a main
living and sleeping room and a bathroom with a flushing toilet, full shower and basin.
There are two outdoor bathtubs with breath-taking 360-degree views, as well as a pizza oven, fire pits
and a projector to watch your favourite movies on.
The Kōwhai tent is located in Waitomo, New Zealand.
Our safari tent was custom made in South Africa, world experts in safari tent making. Insulated for added warmth in the cooler months, the tent is fitted with curtains, fly nets, and large windows so you can still enjoy views while inside. The en suite bathroom is equipped with plenty of eco friendly toiletries for your use, including soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. In short, everything you’d expect from top boutique hotels but with the added bonus of being so close to nature.
There is no electricty at the Kowhai Tent. The water in the bathroom, kitchen and outdoor baths are heated by gas. Please be aware there is mobile phone and 4G coverage.
The bed is as comfortable as can be. It is comprised of: a queen size mattress by Koala, 100% wool underlay, 100% cotton mattress protector, Hungarian goose down pillows and duvet, and 100% linen sheets, pillow and duvet covers. The thick, fluffy towels are Egyptian cotton.
The kitchen features a Buschbeck bbq and pizza oven, as well as gas hob to cook on. You're also welcome to cook over the firepit, or use the complimentary s'mores kit for an indulgent treat.
The kitchen features a few complimentary items - fresh organic herbs (basil, parsley, thyme, coriander, rosemary and mint), marshmallows and biscuits (for toasting on the firepit), butter, 750ml milk (Puhoi Valley), organic eggs from our farm, and a loaf of homemade bread.
Please bring your own food. We have some catering options available at an additional cost.
