  • Add this to you MUST Do list! Amazing and so much fun! Now wanting to come straight back and spend the whole day and try everything else out too. Would definitely recommend this to anyone with a drivers licence. Just enough scary with a mountain of fun and adventure.

  • The Bush Safari tour was a great hit & my son in law, who has done quite a bit of 4WD said he enjoyed coming up against challenging areas that he has not done before. Thanks Rotorua 4WD for making my Christmas present a great success.

  • My husband and I had the best time at Off Road NZ! Our faces hurt from smiling so much while challenging ourselves on the Bush Safari, before the once-in-a-lifetime thrill that is the Monster Truck, and the awesome Go Kart track. As well as being an exciting, adrenaline-pumping couple of hours, we were so impressed by the impeccable facilities, and most of all the staff... Well done team at Off Road NZ. We can't wait to come back and bring our friends!

  • The 4 wheel drive safari is so much fun. Not cheap but if you are able to do this put it at the top of your list of activities to do when in town. We will definitely be going again when we are next back in town. If we had 10 stars to pick that wouldn't even be enough to rate this place
