What our manuhiri have to say
At Unique Whanganui River Experience, we love taking manuhiri (visitors) from all across Aotearoa, out onto our awa (river) and giving them an experience filled with manaakitanga (hospitality) and adventure. Here is a little of what they have to say.
Truly ‘Unique Whanganui experience’
A 5 day experience of real genuine passion and commitment. An excellent knowledge of the river, its history and its foibles. Good to work with and a fun sense of humour. Had a lot of fun.
Paddling the day’s away down the Whanganui
We booked a 3 day trip down the River as a social trip for work. Jamie and the team really looked after us. Couldn’t have been better. We met at the Blue Duck Cafe, Whakahoro, part of Blue Duck Station where we got the history of the Station and the work they are doing on pest control to help the native blue duck, after getting transported in from Taumarunui. After dinner (great)and breakfast (also great) at the cafe, the next morning we set off down the river. Jamie had all the gear covered and the equipment was in great condition. All the bases were covered from organising our car storage, transport, to food and equipment. All the feed back from the crew has been positive – highly recommended.
