Are there any restrictions on activities?

Raceline Karting requires participants be 14 years or older and a minimum height of 1.4 meters tall.

No, our guides are specifically trained to drive the custom built Monster 4X4 Truck. It’s not as easy as they make it look!

  • 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.
