Lake Moeraki, New Zealand
Wilderness Lodge Lake Moeraki has been at the forefront of nature conservation for three decades. After campaigning to have the area protected, Anne Saunders and Dr. Gerry McSweeney established the lodge in 1989 to demonstrate a sustainable alternative to native forest logging. Anne and Gerry continue to own and run the lodge today.
Few places on earth can match the natural setting of the lodge, situated in the heart of the 6.7 million-acre South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, Te Wahipounamu. Guests are accommodated in 28 spacious rooms, all stylishly appointed with en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee facilities, fresh fruit, flowers and home baking. Free satellite broadband Internet is available for guests' use, and a complimentary guest laundry is available.
The lodge serves outstanding meals incorporating fresh local produce. A network of rainforest trails and kayaks are available for guests to enjoy at their leisure.
