Ultimate Thermal Safari Thrill Ride

THE PERFECT WAIKATO RIVER DAY TRIP



The Thermal Safari is the only jet boat tour in the world to incorporate a fantastic geothermal wonderland and a thrilling jet boating experience. This ULTIMATE option includes free transport and added attractions: Pick-up and drop-off from your Rotorua or Taupō location, visits and guided tours to a selection of NZ's incredible natural wonders before boarding your Riverjet Boat to 'The Thermal Safari'. See below for the full programme.

No other activity in New Zealand offers kiwi iconics Riverjet and Orakei Korako combined into one awesome day combo!

Jet Boat down the Waikato River through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge. See abundant bird life, pine forests, steaming volcanic river banks and trout feeding areas on your way down to Orakei Korako; one of New Zealand’s most popular geothermal attractions. Walk around this magnificent thermal reserve, see boiling mud, geysers and silica terraces.

This awesome adventure brings you up close to a slice of New Zealand scenery only a select few have seen. The stunning scenery of the mighty Waikato River makes you feel like time stood still as you gently cruise through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge where the canyon walls rise dramatically up to 50 metres above the water.

The stunning native bush and abundant wildlife you’ll encounter will leave you with a lasting impression. During several stops along the way our drivers explain about the rich history of the area and its unique wildlife.

Even though the beautiful surroundings of the Waikato River are an important part of the safari, we also like to –in good kiwi fashion- offer you a bit of excitement. The jet boat takes you close to obstacles in the water and we shoot at full speed towards the river banks. And of course you’ll experience the legendary Hamilton spins. We tailor all our rides to suit the needs and adventure feel of all passengers, making sure it is a safe and enjoyable experience for a
