We just finished a fabulous Heaphy Express with Jenni. So easy with transport, food and cooking arranged. The food was great and there was plenty of it-Jen’s cocoa butter and ginger sweets are a highlight! Take one of the mattress covers if you get a chance-and try and persuade her to start selling them. Jen was great-well organised, kind, patient, full of information and stories, and really good humoured.

Just completed the Old Ghost Road from Lyell to Seddonville (Rough & Tumble Lodge) with Jenni Kingston (owner of Kahurangi Guided Walks) and her team member Sophie. The track that has been built by the dedicated volunteers and now maintained by a Private Company is absolutely amazing!! Built mostly on an old Gold Mining track, this is for walkers and mountain bikers. The purpose built huts (which must be pre-booked) were great; very comfortable and as the weather was still mixed, the wood burners were very welcome. What really made this trip was the brilliant preparations and meals provided by Jenni - who would have thought we would be eating locally smoked hot salmon and a quinoa salad up in the wilds of Kahurangi National Park! Day after day Jenni magically produced delicious meals and snacks - her date treats to die for! Other travellers pouring hot water into travel meal sachets looked on in awe as we sat down to incredible food. This was an amazing multi-day walk!

We had a wonderful 6 day trip with Jenni on the Old Ghost Rd. She and Peter carried and cooked all our food. We only had to bring our clothing. She has a passion for her work, but she’s not intrusive with her knowledge, nor overly ambitious with distances and time. We’ve booked another trip with her next year, Covid permitting. Btw, my husband and I are 68 years old, and aside from expected aches and pains, had absolutely no trouble with the terrain or the distance. If we had, Jenni would have pulled out her trusty first aid kit and Bob’s your uncle! :-)

Jenni was a fantastic guide for my 4 day tramp along the Heaphy Track! She was incredibly knowledgeable and fantastic company for the walk. I had a very rewarding and enjoyable trip.
