Host your party or function in our luxe safari tent

Welcome to BaseCamp

A luxe safari tent venue located at Secret Spot Hot Tubs beside the Whakarewarewa Forest. BaseCamp is available for both group bookings and casual café customers to sit, relax, and enjoy the forest views.
If you’re looking for a venue in Rotorua with the wow factor, friendly hosts, and a relaxed atmosphere, look no further than BaseCamp! One of our best kept secrets, BaseCamp is a luxe glamping tent venue complete with two open firepits, a fully licensed cedarwood bar, deer antler chandeliers, and enchanting candle lighting.
BaseCamp seats 65 people indoors with a mix of couches, chairs, and picnic tables, with outdoor seating on the patio also available. Catering options include tasty grazing platters and a wide variety of BBQ meals (including a traditional South African braai). These delicious and versatile plates are ideal for any event, conference, or family get-together.
Relax inside BaseCamp with friends or colleagues while overlooking the lush native bush landscaping or explore Secret Spot further. Enjoy one of our complimentary Shinny Dip foot hot tubs, play lawn games, or book a 45-minute cedar hot tub to soak away your stress. Our outdoor hot tubs overlook the peaceful Puarenga Stream and are surrounded by native ferns. You’ll also receive tub-side bar service, with drinks delivered to you at the push of a button!
