NZ Nomad Safaris
Description: Many years before Queenstown's reputation spread as an adventure resort, the lure of gold and the sheer rugged beauty of the country drew early settlers to this region.
A Nomad Safari is a true off-road adventure for those who choose not to follow the pack.
Tours to Skippers Canyon; Macetown; Seffertown.
We offer a very personalised activity with an educated commentary, travelling in a Land Rover with up to 7 other passengers.
You learn about the area's goldmining history and make friends with strangers! We provide refreshments with homebaking and also you get to try doing some goldpanning of your own!
We also offer Nomad Safaris 4WD Experience. Steer your own course in this exciting adventure safari. During a half day's 4WD adventuring you will experience dirt roads, river crossings and hill climbs. Conquer challenging terrain under the expert guidance of a Nomad Safari's Land Rover trained and qualified 4WD instructor.

Description: Tandem Skydive from 15000, 12000 or 9000ft above Queenstown.
Expect sensory overload as your mind/soul/body fight against every natural self preservatory urge, as YOU STEP OUT THAT AIRCRAFT DOOR AND FOR SOME 60 SECONDS PLUMMENT TOWARDS THE GROUND AT 200KPH. The personal challenge is immense.
Your flight to altitude will take you high above the lakes of Queenstown , the view from altitude 15000ft is simply spectacular. NZONE also offer a full range of freefall camera options. A skydive photographer will film you from aircraft exit to landing, flying beside you during freefall capturing your entire skydive experience.
No experience necessary. 100kg weight limit applies. The company operates all year. Achievement doesn’t come sweeter.
