Our company nutritionists and dieticians have helped to advise and plan menus to suit people from all countries from all around the world.

Our students can expect to be fed a nutritious and high energy diet. It is very important to stay hydrated and fed during the day. There is nothing worse than going hungry! We regularly make stops and have snacks on hand to replenish along the way.

We have the unique ability to cater for almost any dietary requirements our students may have some including, halal, vegetarian, vegan or other allergies.

Just let us know in your application what requirement you have and we will organise the rest.


Manaaki Adventures have organised the most appropriate transportation options for our student groups.  We employ transportation companies that have reached the “Qualmark” standard, meaning they have reached the highest quality standard of transportation providers in New Zealand. This means that they are also committed to provide high quality coaches with comfortable seats. Their drivers are very experienced and are always very popular with the students.

We cover some large distances up and down the country therefore we make it a top priority for our transportation to be top of the line.

We always have access to support vehicles no matter where we are to use in the event of an emergency, to ensure immediate evacuation if necessary.

For any air travel we will book flights with Air New Zealand, who is the flagship highest quality airline in our country. At times we also will use the inter islander ferry which is a sea vessel which links the North and South Island.


We have organised the best and most appropriate accommodation providers in all areas of New Zealand. Depending on what each group chooses our accommodation options range from friendly back packer style dorm rooms, traditional Maori sleeping rooms, tents while camping, single rooms, small bush huts to luxury private rooms.

We are constantly updating our accommodation options to make sure our students are getting the best. The large majority of our trips are spent in motels and lodge accommodation. Students will be in sharing gender separated rooms which usually include their own en-suite facilities.

Some groups choose to get out in the wilderness where we stay in cabins, tents and huts designed to handle New Zealand outdoor environment. When camping we have access to communal washing facilities.
