Jet Boat down the Waikato River through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge. See abundant bird life, pine forests, steaming volcanic river banks and trout feeding areas on your way down to Orakei Korako; one of New Zealand’s most popular geothermal attractions. Walk around this magnificent thermal reserve, see boiling mud, geysers and silica terraces.

Even though the beautiful surroundings of the Waikato River are an important part of the safari, we also like to –in good kiwi fashion- offer you a bit of excitement. The jet boat takes you close to obstacles in the water and we shoot at full speed towards the river banks.
