Our Story

Hi, we’re Amy and Mikey, the creative brains and the feet on the ground behind Explore Life Glamping. We started this venture in 2015 with one tent on a little piece of farmland overlooking Lake Wanaka and by 2017 we had created a hotel we could take anywhere, for any event. 

We purchased tents and beautiful teak and leather furniture reminiscent of vintage safari tents used by explorers, and created a beautiful and unique product.


By 2018 we had two distinct ventures running. Mt Gold Glamping, which hosts our permanent geodesic star domes overlooking Lake Wanaka, and Explore Life, our pop up hotel and events company.

We wanted to create something special which will live on in the minds of those who experience it, long after it’s over, and this is exactly what we have achieved with our business. We hope you get the chance to experience it’s magic too!
