      Matamata and Waitomo caves

      A travel blog entry by kylie_jenkin on Dec 01, 2014

      ... for our final 2 hour drive back to Rotorua, literally just in time for our 6.30 pick up to the Tamaki Maori Village. We spent the evening learning about traditional Maori way of life, dance and song displays (including the Haka of course!) and finished with a mouth watering feast of lamb, chicken and veg that had been cooking in their traditional underground ovens for about 5 hours. Despite the torrential rain shower we had mid way it was a great ...

      ... will join. The cave is called Footwhistle because of a really big stalactite that looked like a foot and a steam whistle.
      I really enjoyed my time in the cave. At one point, I got a little nervous because it was really dark when Rich turned off the lights so we could see the glow worms better. But once I got used to it, I was fine and I could see even more glow worms.

      After our time in the cave, we went to a small hut where Rich's great-grandparents once ...

He seemed very knowledgeable about the area and showed us a walk that we hope to go on tomorrow.

      I'm glad we booked the restaurant as we went ...

      ... didn't realize that these 'holes' would plummet them to the bellies of the caves,....to their immediate death. The good part about this was that we were able to view the skeletal remains of a Moa Bird,....which is extinct. This carcass was estimated to be 20.000 years old, determined by the age of the cave around it. All cool stuff.
      After we left the caves, we headed back to the hostel. Adrienne had been looking for a tattoo artist to re color an old ...

      The Glow Worms Cave

      ... mountain whereby we climb a hill, through a forest to grab a tube and walking further into the entrance of the caves.

      It was a long dry walk in the cave before the sound of a waterfall coming closer and closer. In between we had introduction of various bones of animals, shells, and the glow worms. These glow worms had something hanging that look like multiple string of pearls emitting blue lights.

      Our ...
