Waiatoto River Safari

1975 Haast-Jackson Bay road Jackson Bay, Haast 7886 West Coast New Zealand

Waiatoto River Safari. Ocean to the Mountains 2.25 - 2.5 hours of extraordinary nature and exceptional beauty only seen on this trip.


Experience the history of Gondwana land, smell the rainforest as you walk softly through the dripping ferns with the sparkling clear light shimmering, with the snowy peaks as your backdrop. 

Your experienced guide will lead you through the ancient river, still untouched as it was thousands years ago when the Maori first roamed the land, the great Moa bird and Haast eagle still ruled the ancient forests. 

You will experience the magical, breathtaking beauty of the Te Wahipounamu, the maori name for the South West New Zealand World Heritage area and take home memories that will have you yearning to return once more.
