We are a Fishing/Farm lodge in the remote Mokai Valley right on the Rangitikei River. Trout fishing right at your door step. Gorgeous accommodation and amazing scenery. Very quiet and private with own spa pool and More the trout fishing is amazing. Enjoy a scenic raft trip or just enjoy the stunning scenery. Less
