Tour Guide

Hi my name is Cara Maxwell and I am the owner and tour guide of Jandal Camping Tours. I was born and raised in New Zealand, Invercargill to be precise (don’t tell anyone) and moved to Christchurch when I was 5 and brought up by my lovely parents Trish and Stu on a farm in Yaldhurst. I have travelled around the world backpacking in countries like Canada, America and Australia, 85% of the time I was camping in tents and this is how I love seeing the world. My next adventure will take me across Europe.

I started my very own business because I want to show other travellers my amazing country, I love seeing people appreciate our countries beauty, which we don’t appreciate or notice sometimes, like all our sheep, or driftwood on our beaches, or just how blue our sky is and how amazing our stars are.

I am trying to offer the best camping experience without the huge costs associated with the big bus companies. I believe my tours are as close as you can get to doing a roadtrip yourself. I believe in a no rush cruisey trip. Where you get to see all that New Zealand has to offer and well as the best scenery ever.

I look forward I meeting travellers from around the globe. Where memories are made and new friends are formed.
