River Safari Haast

Haast River Safari

On the West Coast of New Zealand, you can experience a
Haast River Safari – jet boat tours in fully enclosed river boats. These river boats offer great visibility, while ensuring you remain warm, dry and comfortable.

The trip provides an informative and friendly glimpse into both the natural history of the area, and its people. Journeying in the South Westland World Heritage area, your Haast River Safari includes a highly experienced jet boat driver and local guide who will teach you about the physical attributes of this remarkable glacial valley. During your trip, you’ll hear stories of the Kiwi spirit that enabled the Haast community to survive on the edge of the wilderness.

Award winning Haast River Safari is operated by a small dedicated team, who enjoy sharing the passion they have for this remote part of New Zealand with visitors. With the vast majority of Haast River Safari passengers being over 50, emphasis is placed on the suitability of the trip for this age group. The innovative design of the Safari boats allow excellent visibility of the surrounding World Heritage area, and with warmth and comfort assured passengers have a rare opportunity to access this remote and awe-inspiring valley.

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
