Rototoa Lodge is named after Lake Rototoa (aka. Ototoa). Known to be the clearest lake in the Auckland region it is also the largest of the sand dune lakes on the South Head of the Kaipara harbor. The lodge is owned by husband and wife, David & Amanda. David is a former senior executive in pharmaceutical and medical products companies and both he and Amanda lived and worked in Japan, Singapore, Australia for most of the last 20 years. Amanda is a Doctor and mother of our daughter Emma.
David has been passionate about hunting and fishing all of his life and having recently taken an early retirement from the corporate world at 50 he now wants to share this amazing environment with a select few guests each year. While we also have many opportunities for shooting, and can build that into your adventure, our main focus is archery hunting. Nothing else delivers the kind of excitement and closeness to the animals and our environment as stalking with a bow. We hope you agree!
