We don’t do tourism

We provide Adventures and Experiences designed and led by local Kiwis we call Bushmen. Bushman Tours is where adventure meets conservation efforts.

Our platform gives you an exclusive chance to experience Aotearoa (New Zealand) through the eyes of a local, connect with them and get a personal, tailored trip. No tour is ever the same, but the result is.

All of our Bushmen & women are highly knowledgeable, handpicked guides. Preserving and protecting nature through action, donation and education are their goals. When you book an experience with us, you are directly giving back to local communities, as well as foundations all chosen by the Bushmen & women. Don’t just share your time…

Bushman Tours About Us

Everything we do, we do for conservation

We believe it’s personal experiences that can support this. We contribute to this by guiding visitors into areas in need, then provide a percentage of all our tours to organisations dedicated to conservation.

    Bushman Tours supports and donates to Kiwis for Kiwi charity Bushman Tours supports the Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre Bushman Tours support the Kaikoura Wildlife Rescue conservation Bushman Tours Supports the Kakapo Recovery conservation Bushman Tours supports the Kea Conservation Trust Bushman Tours supports the NZ Whale & Dolphin Trust

No adventure is ever the same

All of our hikes, hunts and adventures are designed and put together by locals who have a wealth of knowledge of their region. Arguably, we have the most tours in New Zealand thanks to their passion for adventure and ambition to share it with you.
