How We Travel

We take pride in our customised 4WD tour vehicles. Both vehicles feature a high level of comfort, space and features and are fully compliant with New Zealand's transport regulations as administered by New Zealand Transport Agency. They are fully insured and are covered by our corporate AA (Automobile Association) membership.

On board, we carry maps, binoculars, NZ reference books, bottled water, tissues, mints and nibbles. The vehicles also carry first aid kits and fire extinguishers. Both vehicles feature individual high backed seats with seat belts, double air-conditioning systems and PA/CD/DVD/radio systems.
They are also equipped with refrigerators and picnic equipment, and for that something extra special, we serve picnic morning and afternoon teas with New Zealand cookies, coffee and a selection of teas. We also serve full service picnic lunches on some days on our longer tours.

Vehicle safety and maintenance

Safety is paramount in our industry and one of the biggest safety components in the tours we provide are our vehicles. Both of our vehicles are inspected constantly. Firstly in the morning before the tour begins and then during the day, the vehicle's fluid levels, tyre pressures and the general operation of the vehicle checked.

Both vehicles are regularly serviced to meticulous standards by an independent certified mechanic and we operate a "preventive maintenance" program, replacing any worn part with manufacturer's original parts.

The vehicles are also rigorously inspected every six months under the New Zealand Transport Agency legislation to ensure that they meet required safety standards.

The vehicles are also fitted with US made BFGoodrich tyres. We believe that your safety is of the utmost importance and as tyres are your "contact" with the road, we believe in quality tyres and not cheap, inferior tyres.

Our maintenance program also includes a methodical cleaning regime, both interior and exterior.

Luggage is carried separately in luggage trailers, we do not carry luggage in the cabin.

The vehicles

Our vehicles are affectionately known as "Wild 1" and "Wild 2".

Wild 1

This vehicle is a large 4WD and accommodates one or two guests.
As well as the features listed above, it also has roof windows for extra viewing capability. Wild 1 is fully customised with high-lift suspension, which gives a higher view. Seats are fitted with New Zealand lambs wool seat covers for extra comfort.

It is a unique vehicle and is the only one of its kind in New Zealand.

Wild 2

Wild 2 is a large 4WD minicoach and was a 10 seater, but it has been retro fitted in the rear with six large "armchair" style seats. This vehicle can accommodate up to seven guests and is very spacious, and is ideal for two or three couples wishing to travel together.
