this was my favourite - most thrilling experience (apart from the Lions tour of course)... and educational to boot too. Our two guides Jen and Cam were funny, friendly and reassuringly safe to be around while being sent off on a wire at giddy heights......More

It was so much fun even on a rainy day. I thought I would be really scared. The way it was organised made it just a nice experience, not scary at all. Although I didn't dare to go upside down. Kids just loved it.

This is awesome. Can't rate it enough. Book. Dress warm (seriously) with good shoes. Guides are well trained and do all the hard work for you. Awesome work for predator eradication too which profits go to fund. Go go go.

24 hours in advance in April is wise - longer if you arn't flexible with dates. Dress warmly, it will be cool in early April as opposed to cold. Cheers and see you soon!
