At Wilderness, we are 100% committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of our guests, visitors, team members and the community. 


Travel updates for international guests

Last updated 16:30 PM NZT, 13 SEP 2022

The New Zealand government has now lifted all travel restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic. From 13 September 2022, visitors to New Zealand will no longer be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Only people who test positive for Covid-19 will be required to isolate for seven days and masks will only be required when visiting certain healthcare facilities. 


New Zealand’s borders are now fully re-opened.


Our Wilderness motorhomes are the perfect escape! They offer all the comfort and most of the facilities of a modern home plus they’re mobile. So you can stay safe on a motorhome holiday by maintaining your own bubble on wheels.  


Our bases in Auckland and Christchurch bases are open 7 days a week. Our adventure support team will be available to assist you in collecting and returning your motorhome as safely and quickly as possible.


We are excited about welcoming back our friends from around the world. And we know that you too are eager to make a long-awaited trip Down Under - finally.


Travel updates for domestic guests

Last updated 16:30 PM NZT, 13 SEP 2022

Our teams in Auckland and Christchurch look forward to welcoming you to our bases. Kiwis can travel freely around the country. 


We are so grateful to the thousands of Kiwis who have supported us and other tourism and hospitality businesses over the past two and a half years. We urge you to continue to support New Zealand in the post-Covid recovery phase. As a locally owned business, we strongly encourage Kiwis to explore their own backyard and buy local along the way.

Keeping you safe

The health and wellbeing of all our guests and team members is, as always, our top priority.


We are a COVID Clean approved company as endorsed by Qualmark. This means that we are equipped with health and hygiene measures to help protect against Covid-19, in accordance with government guidelines. 
As always, we continue to thoroughly check and prepare our motorhomes prior to each rental so that you feel safe and comfortable in the wilderness. Every motorhome receives a deep clean before each rental including disinfecting all surfaces with hospital grade cleaning products, sterilising cutlery, crockery, utensils, and pots and pans plus linen and towels using high temperature washing machines and sanitizers.

We have also put a few additional practices in place since April 2020 to keep you safe. These include:

  • increased cleaning and sanitizing of the public spaces and team spaces at our bases

  • educating our team to observe good hygiene practices including washing hands thoroughly with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and providing tissues, hand soap and hand sanitiser for all guests and our team

  • staying home if feeling unwell
