4 week Self-Drive New Zealand Road Trip Itinerary
We’ve got a Whole Lot of Living to do …
Today, our long awaited trip to New Zealand begins. Our 4 week Self-Drive New Zealand Road Trip Itinerary begins in North Island then moves onto South Island before returning home to the UK via Australia (Sydney) and Dubai.
We are expecting a wide variety of landscape on the trip as the northern part of North Island is subtropical and volcanic whilst the Southern tip of South Island is sub Antarctic.
Although we normally prefer to book our trips directly rather than using a travel agent, where short of time for this one and so booked through Discover the World.
Links to all the accommodation we stayed in and excursions we enjoyed en route are included in each post so you can book direct if you want to follow our itinerary and probably save yourself quite a lot of cash.
Once, although there were insects and birds here, there was only one species of mammal here – a small bat. Many of the birds were flightless as there was no exposure to predators.
