Get behind the wheel on an action packed 4WD Bush Safari

The ultimate 4WD adventure that puts you in control. Buckle up and take on an off-road adventure deep into native New Zealand forest. Back in the early 1900s the area Off Road NZ is set on, was used by logging pioneers who logged our native timbers until closing up in the 1970s. The tracks that the pioneers used back then are the same tracks that you will be diving on today. Rugged and remote, the trail is full of unknowns with plenty of thrills along the way.

With instruction from a professional guide, you can tackle terrain made for 4WD adventures. Tight, twisting bends, deep muddy holes, a seven metre-high luge, steep climbs and thrilling descents – this is uncharted territory with challenges that come thick and fast.

Don’t hold back, get hands on and let the good times roll!

  • The go-kart race was the obvious highlight for the majority of our group. The 4WD safari was a great way for our newly formed team to bond with someone new. All the staff were patient, informative, and extremely accommodating. Special thanks to the team for going above and beyond with the awards ceremony, driving to get our food, cleaning up after us etc - they made it so easy, thank you! The campfire/conference space was perfect for what we needed. A colleague commented how nice it was to have a "conference" outside of a conventional board room and in a remote, relaxed environment that fostered team bonding.

  • My partner and I visited Off Road NZ during our stay in Rotorua, and it’s definitely one of the best activities we did! For anyone who wants something a bit different, this is definitely a must.

  • The 4WD bush safari was absolutely worth it. Our guide had the quintessential kiwi 'she'll be right' attitude and kept us engaged and informed the whole way - could not have asked for more.

Would you take the wheel? 😬 Our 4WD adventure puts YOU in the driver’s seat….with a little help from our pit crew staff too. Tag a friend who’d jump right into the passenger sest to join in on the fun! Or the one who might need rescuing the most…😅
