New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with lush green sceneries and a fresh environment making it a pleasant place to be for any visitor. Yet these never ending pastures gleaming in green ideal for relaxation are not the only features that draw visitors to New Zealand; the country also has an interesting culture, which it prides itself on. This culture dates back to historic times, but has been kept alive through careful preservation. The Maori people or those indigenous to this land have contributed to making the culture what it is, as many of their traditions are ingrained in the local way of life.
One of the greatest cultural experiences that visitors will have when in New Zealand is a visit to the Tamaki Maori Village, a highly acclaimed site among tourists. In the area of the Rotorua Forest, visitors will find this attraction, where they can experience what takes place in an authentic Maori Village. It is an interactive experience, where visitors will not only see how the tribes live, but also get to partake in the activities and live like the indigenous people themselves. In addition to being entertaining there is a lot to learn from the experience as well, and it is enjoyed by all who partake in it.
The experience at the Tamaki Maori village begins with a traditional welcome, where traditionally dressed characters perform fierce war cries until it is shown that visitors come in peace. Watch various performances thereafter that will amaze spectators. Explore the village and observe the people at work, performing tasks that were once considered very important. The authentic experience is made even more exciting when a traditional Maori meal is served up, and is shared by the tribes and the visitors. Find out how the delicious meal was made over the open fire outdoors and much more. It is the ideal place to head to when interested in the beautiful culture of New Zealand, unique to any other culture in the world. It is a very authentic way to experience the country.
