Location: Waitomo, New Zealand

MapBlack Water Rafting

Next stop on the Magic Bus was the Waitomo Caves. Here we decidied that the most enjoyable way to see the caves would be rafting along on an inflatable tube - Black Water Rafting. Before entering we got kitted out in a very fetching wetsuit and pair of wellies. Once inside the cave we walked, floated, swam and climbed our way through. We also got to jump of a small waterfall and go down a water slide. Along the way our path was lit up by thousands of glowworms. The water was freezing and we were glad to have the wetsuits on in the end! Another fun and exciting experience and a great way to see these amazing caves.
