Creating remarkable experiences for more than 15 years

Making every Wilderness experience a remarkable one is our guiding philosophy. We call it The Wilderness Way. It’s our shared commitment and our way of thinking and acting that makes each guest experience uniquely memorable.

The Wilderness Way starts back at the beginning - with the founders. Our story is the story of a family business built on shared values, experiences, attitudes and aspirations. These elements formed the foundation of what we believe and how we do things.

Why Choose Wilderness

At Wilderness, we put you the guest at the centre of everything we do. That’s the Wilderness Way. It’s not just about our high end motorhomes (although we know you’ll love those) but it’s also about the care we show you and everything we do to enable you to collect your own remarkable moments. When you book your holiday with Wilderness, you can be sure:


You get a motorhome that was designed to be owned, not to be rented.

The motorhomes in our rental fleet are the same makes and models that we sell to Kiwis who are looking for that comfortable, luxury-feel, modern stylish set of wheels to explore their homeland. Our motorhomes are a cut above the average rental vehicle because we want you to be able to explore New Zealand in the same style and comfort that discerning Kiwis who own their motorhomes are used to.

See For Yourself


You'll get exclusive access to a collection of secret camp spots around New Zealand.

In search of hidden gems? We will share with you our favourite secret spots which only locals know about so you can see New Zealand as a Wilderness explorer not as a tourist. We’ve partnered with New Zealand’s best intrepid travel writer Scott Cook to bring you a curated collection of the best freedom camping sites. We call them WilderNessts.
