Kaitiakitanga is a Maori term that means guardianship of the land.
We never take our stunning environment for granted and are committed to preserving our piece of paradise here in the South Pacific. If you as our tour guest notice anywhere we can reduce our footprint on the environment, please let us know. We would truly appreciate your knowledge, feedback and ideas.
Wildsouth Discovery treads carefully on the land.
The Tiaki Promise is a nation-wide commitment by both visitors and locals to care for New Zealand while travelling, for now and for future generations.
It embodies three elements:
1. Caring for land, sea and nature by treading lightly and leaving no trace.
2. Travelling safely, by showing care and consideration for all.
3. Finally, respecting culture by travelling with an open heart and mind.
We encourage our visitors to embrace the Tiaki Promise as we do ourselves.
