Betty the Bongo

In Christchurch, New Zealand


Betty the Bongo is waiting to take you on your New Zealand adventure!

Perfect for 1 or 2 people wanting to hit the road and see what this amazing country has to offer!

Inside, the L-Shape seating area converts to a full size double bed for a great nights sleep. All bedding is supplied, 2 sleeping bags, pillows, sheet to fit over the cushions and extra blankets if you need them. We also supply beach and/or bath towels if you need them.

A solar panel and separate battery powers the internal lighting, water pump, 2 USB charging points and a 12Volt socket. Although there are no mains power points in the van, a power cord is in the van if you want to connect to a powered site. There is a Bluetooth USB speaker in the van to connect your phone/ipod to.

The kitchen area at the back of the van has a nice deep sink with powered pump tap, a single burner butane gas stove, 12volt powered chilly bin (only to be used on solar power when the sun is shining!) which can also be used on mains power if using the mains cord at a powered site. Also supplied is all the crockery, cutlery and cookware you will need, as well as cleaning cloths, detergents and tea towels.

The fresh and waste water tanks each hold 25 litres. A portable toilet can be provided if you need it, but will mean a slightly narrower bed.

There is also a box of 'all sorts' in the van, clothes line/pegs, citronella candles etc. If there is anything you need in the van for your trip, just ask and we'll see what we can do!

2 big comfy folding chairs and a small table are included for sitting outside.

Betty is really easy to drive, automatic transmission and petrol engine. She's not too big, so easy to park in a normal car space!

Located in Rangiora, North Canterbury which is about half hour north of Christchurch. Rangiora is a great starting point heading north on State Highway 1 towards Kaikoura or south on the inland scenic route (highly recommending if travelling towards Tekapo, Wanaka or Queenstown!). Whatever your plans, we will arrange picking you up or meeting you with the van at the airport or in Christchurch if you need us to. Pick up / drop off times are flexible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
