Committed to Sustainable Tourism

Our sustainability commitment

Cheeky Kiwi Travel is committed to sustainable tourism through its environments and procurement actions. We strongly believe that if New Zealand’s precious natural environment is allowing Cheeky Kiwi to operate as a business, it is only right that we practice Kaitiaki (guardianship) and do what we can to protect it through:

Restoring Nature & Giving Back

Carbon Reduction

Reducing & Eliminating Waste

Responsible Procurement
