The lodge is a short drive to Little Bush near Puketitiri, a 12 hectare reserve owned by Forest & Bird. The reserve contains well marked tracks and a variety of labelled trees, so you can school up on your botanical knowledge! Situated on the Napier Puketitiri Road, close to the Kaweka Ranges, Te Puia Hot Springs and Balls Clearing, this lodge is a prime base for any trampers, bird-watchers, bat-lovers, canoeists and kayakers. We personally recommend doing a day hike around the upper Mohaka river, and then finishing the day with a soak at the Te Puia hot springs.
The lodge sleeps 10 people and has a fully-equipped kitchen and a large communal area. Bedding is not provided.
