    We chose this over Wai-O-Tapu as everyone at our accommodation said it was a more natural experience...and they were right! Although the path for the walk is well cared for and safe. The surrounding bush and thermal features are untouched and there is lot to see with many info

    We did the all-day visit to Waimangu, and it was well worth the time. It's a spectacular park with hot springs, vents, geysers and amazing pools everywhere you go. We also saw lots of native plants and birds, as well as not-so-native - a whole flock of black swans on the lake.

    Great Trip I can only recommend. The combination of Waimangu and Wai O Tapu was perfect. Unbelievably beautiful landscape.

    Breath taking sights, geothermal park was amazing. A must do for all holiday makers. Wai-O-Tapu was a little challenging for lunch, but we did arrive late!
