Stay Native is a platform that allows tourists to browse and book indigenous experiences and engage with indigenous people in Northland.
One of the founding principles of Stay Native is whanaungatanga, or connectivity.
Stay Native’s platform will facilitate the booking of experiences which are authentic and meaningful, to build connections and relationships, and to share with tourists the beauty and the magic of Te Tai Tokerau.
