Full Immersion Te Reo Maori tours at Waitomo Caves

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:45 pm on 15 September 2021

More Te Wiki o te Reo Māori celebrations!

With the Waikato safely back in level 2, tours are once again underway at the iconic glow worm caves of Waitomo.

This week they're doing something very cool - tours given either bilingually or entirely in te reo Māori, guided by direct descendents of the cave's original explorers.

One of the kaimahi/guides, Moera Anderson joins Jesse to chat about his connection to Waitomo and what these new tours will look like.
