There is no country in the world quite like New Zealand. We are not a big country, so small in area but with a wealth of natural beauty found hardly anywhere else. For those lucky enough to travel in New Zealand, it is the golden beaches, ancient forests, crystal clear lakes, majestic alps, glaciers and the thermal areas that catch our attention and hearts. Everything anyone could ever dream of in one small area, New Zealand has it all – a pocket edition of the world!

Wildsouth Discovery is a specialist New Zealand tour company offering bespoke, exclusive tours and extraordinary service in South Island. We tailor individual tours considering all of your wishes and specialise in truly customised luxury tours with your own personal driver/guide and host/guide. 

Guests have described our tours as "companion tours"...

We find with that with many of our guests that we take on tour, we develop a bond and feel more like we are taking friends around rather than tour clients. We do however make sure that everything proceeds effortlessly and we are also flexible with regard to our tour guests’ wishes and of course, New Zealand’s weather!
