Our guides have been chosen for their unique personalities &
knowledge of their country. All are 100% kiwis, & love the work
they do. We made the decision to keep our company
small & personalised, employing just a selected number of
guides which enables us to ensure our visitors receive an
incomarable & quality experience.
Doug Johansen & Jan Poole - Owners/Directors
|They have both independently received Queen's medals for their
contribution to nature, New Zealand Tourism and education & are
regarded as two of New Zealand's foremost guides. Doug has been in
eco-tourism since 1975, and in 1992 won the New Zealand inaugural
Eco Tourism Award. Jan & Doug formed their new company together
in 1994 and decided to use "Kiwi Dundee" for their company name.
[Doug won a New Zealand wide competition to find New Zealand's
equivalent to Crocodile Dundee!]
Jan & Doug have a warm rapport with people and a deep love
& understanding of nature.
