About Us


Richard, Tabitha, Russell and Manahi McKenzie (Āti Haunui-ā-Pāpārangi) (Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāi Te Rangi, Te Āti Awa) Kāpiti Four x 4 Adventure Ltd is a whānau (family) owned and operated business 45 mins north of Wellington on the Kāpiti Coast in the Maungakotukutuku Valley just out of Paraparaumu. The McKenzie whānau took over in December 2015 however it has been long standing with the previous owners leading us into its 16th year. We look forward to meeting you and creating an experience you will remember. Please contact us to plan your next adventure, team building event or corporate offsite!   Rory Larkin (Lead Tour Guide) Rory is our most experienced staff member with 10+ years under his belt. Born in Australia (we won’t hold that against him) but raised in the Kāpiti Coast, Rory knows the area like the back of his hand. Rory has spent a lot of his life exploring the Akatarawa Ranges hunting and riding! He has plenty of local knowledge of the area!   Duncan Banks (Tour Guide) Duncan is not only a very experienced adventure guide; he is also the chief bus driver. Duncan has lived on the Kāpiti Coast all his life; he has been with Kāpiti Four x 4 Adventure Ltd for around 10 years and has great local knowledge and enjoys taking the longer rides, venturing deep into the ranges and sharing the 18,500 hectares with our customers. If your group needs transport to and from your venue, Duncan is your man.
