This package has been specially designed so that you really do have the best of both worlds – two wonderful nights dining in the super stylish and exclusive setting at Matakauri Lodge AND a night out on the town to experience Queenstown’s laid back and lively restaurant and bar scene. On the night of your choice you will be picked up by your own personal driver and escorted in style in a luxury sedan into Queenstown and one of two fabulous restaurants.

Choose to dine at the uber-hip and delicious Botswana Butchery for a three course a la carte dinner. Before or after dinner at Botswana Butchery you'll have the choice of visiting Bardeaux or Barmuda two of Queenstown’s famously fun night spots.


Choose Michelin starred Josh Emett’s recently opened Rātā, which encompasses a “real” restaurant experience. Soak in the atmosphere whilst enjoying a pre-dinner drink in Rātā’s bar, before enjoying a superb meal.

With your driver at your disposal, you are free to plan the night to suit you, knowing your chauffeur will take you back to the privacy of Matakauri Lodge!
