Mou Waho is an island in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. It is around the same size as the nearby Mou Tapu, these two islands being the largest in the lake.

Buff weka can be found on the island and are predators of much of the native wildlife including mountain stone wētā, cave wētā, and Southern Alps geckos. For this reason students of the local Mount Aspiring College built 40 small wooden motels for these animals to safely live in.
