Mahara Campervan

In Queenstown, New Zealand


Our campervan Mahara (Maori meaning mindfulness) is a beautiful wooden home-away-from-home to explore the stunning New Zealand countryside. Some of the best spots in the country are a just short drive away - Milford Sound, Wanaka, Mount Cook, Lake Tekapo, West Coast.

Park up, light the wood burner fire/stove inside, sit back with a wine and a good book and I promise you'll never want to leave. Our camper is set up to be self sufficient off grid which means you can freedom camp, or if you choose stay in a camping ground.

Here's some details about Mahara:

- 2 seats, with internal walk through to back (so you don't get wet if it's raining)

- comfortable bed, with real mattress, linen provided including duck down cosy duvet and wool blanket. Bed length is 170cm (My husband is 6'3 - 190cm and sleeps comfortably in the van - legs on a bit of a angle across bed with me straight up and down being 166cm) The width of bed is 160cm so lots of room between you. You can always lay other way with feet off bed end if you're taller.
