      Fantastic adventure activity and great value for money.
      Booked the safari package for my two sons, their review was it was epic, especially the Suzuki Jimny drive and the 4x4 jeep, although so was the karting, so pretty much everything!! Great value for money and a super friendly team. Great way to spend an afternoon.

      Awesome, awesome fun!
      Not even the rain could dampen our fun and sense of adventure. The staff were very informative and thorough with an awesome sense of humour as they briefed us on safety procedures in both the 4WD and the Go Carts. Everybody had absolute fun with this activity, and I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't done this, to definitely give it a go.

      Mega but expensive!
      The kids (14, 12, 9, 6) loved this ride in light rain- the wetter and muddier the better! Best parts were in the bush, roller coaster and widow maker. They provided helpful wet weather gear. Could have been exceptional value but was just too short at about 10 minutes max. Few customers the day we went so no queues.

      Great time 4x4
      Treated my partner and niece to a ride in the monster truck and the bush safari, not the cheapest experience but worth it! Staff are wonderful and friendly.

      Freak of nature
      We arrived an hour early but it wasn't an issue. Went on monster truck first, got kitted out in helmets and wet gear as it was raining...it was fantastic fun, then on to driving a 4x4 over the terrain. Hubby did the driving as it was his birthday treat......omg...what fun.....hubby grinning from ear to ear.....me not so much at the luge lol.......wished we hadn't been the last car as we missed opportunities to see others doing the thrill drops

      Family Fun
      Desperate for a day out, this was a perfect family afternoon activity. Conquered the self drive track then thrilled on the monster 4x4 ride. We are still talking about it and recommending to everyone!

      An absolute must!
      My partner and I visited Off Road NZ during our stay in Rotorua, and it’s definitely one of the best activities we did! For anyone who wants something a bit different, this is definitely a must. We did the Freak of Nature package which included the 4WD Bush Safari and 4x4 Monster Thrill Ride. The 4WD Bush Safari was amazing. You drive the vehicle yourself and a guide walks around the track and communicates via radio to tell you where to go. You go through deep water, mud, up hills, steep drops and there are a few challenges which were heaps of fun! The tracks are well made but still make you feel like you’re actually off-road. “The Luge” drop was definitely a highlight. You also go through some really deep water and on a steep My partner has owned trucks before and done a lot of 4WDing and still had a great time. Obviously you have to go relatively slow around the track but there are some more technical and challenging bits to make it exciting! Our guide was Cory and he was amazing at explaining everything and made the trip lots of fun! He was a great guide and also had plenty of knowledge about the area etc The Monster Ride was great fun too! As someone who has done plenty of adrenalin activities, I thought this might be a bit mundane for me - but it was very thrilling and loads of fun! The 4x4 was crazy and the track has lots of twists and turns. Overall an amazing experience! All the staff were super friendly and it was a great facility, I can’t wait to come back one day!

      Fun filled adventure
      Husband and I had done this trip about 12 years ago and loved it so we decided to take Mr 7 along for the ride this time. He had a ball. He sat in the front seat (on his booster seat) and got the best view of all the water holes, crazy leans and bridges, not to mention the waterfall and the luge. So much fun and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thanks Dom - you made it really safe and really fun. Looks like we’ll be back to to the Monster 4 x 4 sometime soon!!

      Fantastic morning
      We had a fantastic morning with Our guide. The safari was amazing I loved being able to drive the obstacles knowing I had someone watching our back. The weather wasn’t the best which made it even more fun. The go karts were also. Hit. Thanks for a fantastic morning

      Great fun experience
      The whole experience was great. All the staff were super friendly. They gave us a great safety briefing and the karts were great fun. We were a family of 5 with 3 teenagers and we had so much fun. We will definitely be back.

      Cracking Karting
      That was (hands down) the best Karting experience I have had in NZ. The Karts were grippy and grunty. The brakes actually worked! However, it's all about that track... the flat out downhill, double left hander is as sweet as you'll find anywhere. Then you discover that the final right-hander can be taken flat as well and you just can't stop grinning. Loved it. Don't be put off by the cost. In fact I suggest you need 30mins to really appreciate it all.

      So much fun
      The 4 wheel drive safari is so much fun. Not cheap but if you are able to do this put it at the top of your list of activities to do when in town. We will definitely be going again when we are next back in town. If we had 10 stars to pick that wouldn't even be enough to rate this place

    This was the second time I have done this experience and highly recommend it. The family had a great time and cant wait to return to try the karting when our daughter is older. Cory our guide was great and managed to get us around the course in one piece. We arrived without a booking but the staff were very accommodating to fit us in before a large pre-booked party arrived. Definitely recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment as we were lucky to to have been squeezed in.

    Best thrill-seeking experience! While booking over the phone i had amazing, friendly service which made me more excited about coming and then upon arriving, my guide Dom (Cory also helped) was amazing and talked me through how to drive the obstacle course. I felt safe the entire time considering im driving down 80 degree drops, the truck is leaning so far to one side it feels like im gonna tip and then im going through huge water-filled trenches. Also tried the monster truck ride which i loved! Just like a roller coaster but tons of reving and mud, its great. Kart racing was the best aswell, even though i didnt go too fast as it was raining. Highly, HIGHLY recommend doing all 3 activities, you wont regret it. Its made me want to buy a truck, haha.

    Self-drive of their 4 wheel dive vehicles though off road tracks and water hazards was the best activity we did in Rotorua. Particularly awesome was the 6metre vertical drop. My partner and I were able to take turns at driving. Oud guide Dom was real friendly and helpful too.

    Great wet day activity you stay completely dry.

    Our guide was awesome. And it was just what we needed after spending a week in the rain.

    We looked online first and there were no options coming up on that same day. but thought we’d ring anyway and there were loads of options. so definitely ring if you’re looking at going the same day in case.

    There was a lot of squealing from our 2 daughters, but they loved it overall.

    We didn't know exactly what we were signing up for, but this ended up being one of our most memorable experiences from our many trips to the Rotorua area. It was a lot of fun, and pushed us just outside our comfort zone while remaining safe. Also, don't miss the chance to eat the leaf that tastes like chewing gum, amazing. We may have to come back and try out the go karts.

    I bought a tour for my daughter, son & their partners for Christmas, but had nothing to put under the tree but the lovely people from Rotorua 4WD tours went out of their way to hand deliver vouchers for me.
    The Bush Safari tour was a great hit & my son in law, who has done quite a bit of 4WD said he enjoyed coming up against challenging areas that he has not done before. Thanks Rotorua 4WD for making my Christmas present a great success.

    No words....superbly exciting...highly recommended...
    The guides at every step make u feel secure and with the option to change drivers this is one thing one should not miss...
    The 80 degree fall is just awesome and keep looking for the funny signages at every corner...especially the last one...

    Hubby was bought this experience as a birthday treat - and oh what a treat it was! When we arrived, he even had his own welcome sign, wishing him a happy birthday! I had planned to sit in the car and wait for him, but was encouraged to join in and I am so very glad I did. WHAT A LAUGH! Nathan was our guide on the radio, making sure we were safe but also entertained, every step of the way. I cannot recommend this place enough. They cater for parties and corporate events too and are very well equipped (very impressed with the super clean toilets too!!). We would be keen to return and maybe try the go karts too :D
