  • Grant and the team at Owhango Adventures are the best! They have great gear, the staff are knowledgeable and they're that little bit smaller than other operators which means you get a much more personal experience. Couldn't recommend more highly

  • There were no glitch at all during the whole experience from booking to the end of our journey, we took the 5 days Canoe river journey and it was one of the best experience we ever had. Grant, his daughter and the staff, were so friendly and helpful, we were well informed about all the risk and making sure that we all ready for the trip! 4 thumbs up!! definitely will recommend this operator to our friend!
