Fabulous entertainment and amazing dinner Hangi

I personally highly recommend everyone from overseas tourists to our New Zealand fellows to check this out. I have been to the daytime one and the night time one and they are both fantastic. The night time one is great to go to if you would like to experience the Hangi which was just amazing and cooked perfectly. The wonderful staff of the Waitangi grounds are very welcoming and explain everything so well. A lot of humour added in as well. I am a New Zealander and my husband is South African and we just love the atmosphere and this time took his sister from South Africa and she loved it. So I guess we wi be seeing you all again soon. Thank you guys.
