Group Size
Approximately 11 Travelers
A very important feature of our New Zealand ecotourism expedition is the limited group size, as nature is best experienced with smaller numbers of travelers.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on final day, services of Nat Hab Expedition Leader, local guides and lodge staff, most gratuities, airport transfers, permits and entrance fees, all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of the trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees, airport and departure taxes, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), optional travel insurance, required medical evacuation insurance and optional activities.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
This trip involves several walks, to enjoy all activities, guests should be able to comfortably walk 1-2 miles over uneven and often slippery terrain. Days involve drives on winding coastal roads. We spend time on boats out on the open sea, where conditions may be rough. Guests prone to motion sickness may wish to take precautions. 
Important Information About This Trip
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Christchurch in time for a 2:00 pm start to the itinerary. It is highly recommended to arrive one day early in the event of travel delays and to allow time to adjust to the time difference. You will arrive to Dunedin by 2 pm to meet the group for an optional group tour on Day 1 of your main tour. We can serve you best if Natural Habitat Adventures’ Travel Desk makes these reservations for you, as they are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient and cost effective travel for you.
