What makes us unique

We offer two unique safari-style options, giving you the choice of how you experience this beautiful country. All our trips are totally private (you won't find yourself sharing with other groups), so we can give your our well-known personal care and attention.

The fully guided tour

Choose this option, and you will be escorted, driven and guided by an expert on the country, who can guarantee you get the best out of your New Zealand safari. Everything will be taken care of - the personally vetted accommodation, the daily route plan, picnics in the wilderness, walks, wildlife activities and fantastic café stops - so you can just relax and enjoy the ride!

Self-guided independent travel

This option gives you complete freedom to decide how your days proceed, but with all the organisational hassles taken out of your hands, so you still experience the best NZ has to offer. We will:

  • greet you on arrival with your safari vehicle and all your safari documents, and give you a full briefing about your journey
  • make all your accommodation bookings in advance
  • book all your activities in advance
  • arrange for local guides and lodge hosts to be available at most destinations to share their in-depth knowledge and add to your independent experience
  • provide full holiday support throughout your trip

Facts at a glance

  • To help our carbon footprint and offset your travel in New Zealand, we have an extensive tree planting project in operation. We have already planted over 2000 plants in Manawatu and now have land in the Tasman district to continue this work. For each person we take on a NZ safari we will plant 5 trees
  • Having organised and put over 500 safaris and holidays on the road, we can guarantee you the holiday of a lifetime
  • There are very few opportunities to take a fully guided safari-style holiday in New Zealand
