Hiking Fanatics

hiking-danI have a passion for New Zealand’s outdoors, and after years of sitting in an office dreaming of being in the bush, my wife and I moved from Auckland to Waipukurau.

I have many years of hiking experience, both in New Zealand and in South Africa. Early on I discovered that a pleasure shared is a pleasure doubled, and that I really enjoyed introducing friends and acquaintances to the joys of hiking in the outdoors.

Our mission is to share the awesome beauty, isolation, ruggedness and uniqueness of New Zealand’s Hawke’s Bay back country with you – we get our kicks from doing this for anyone who shares our love of the outdoors.  But we are not limited to hiking experiences in New Zealand – we have also covered most of the hiking trails around Cape Town,  South Africa. It’s our aim to get you passionate about the outdoors, hiking, walking and to share our desire to conserve and protect these huge assets for future generations.

We look forward to sharing our hiking trips of New Zealand’s North Island and South Africa’s Western Cape mountains with you. And anywhere else we might be privileged to visit too of  course! And we’d love to hear about your hiking, walking and tramping (that’s what New Zealander’s call hiking for those of you who might wonder what we’re on about) experiences t00, so please share with us.
