We are international education specialists. We provide exciting & content-rich educational programs across a variety of disciplines. Our success is built on more than 25 years experience working in high school & college education.
At Kuaka New Zealand we pride ourselves on our sustainable business practices & our proud reputation of exceeding our customers’ expectations. We are a responsible business working to enhance the environments & communities through conservation initiatives & education. We work to leave New Zealand better than we found it.
We’ve been actively involved in native habitat restoration for 20+ years. And with the help of thousands of students we have been able to make a real & significant difference.
We are a field based educator for sustainability & environmental education. We bring international groups to New Zealand on academic credit programs so they learn about sustainability. We specialise in teaching Environmental Science, Geography, Anthropology, Sustainable Business & Service Learning.
We also assist businesses in adopting areas of land to provide ongoing offsets & developing biodiversity.
Our academic programs are designed to be sustainable, assisting students to give something back to the community & environment & then focus on how the students can ‘take this learning home’. We enhance the environment, the community & the students through real, purposeful, effective learning experiences that also improve the destination.
We believe New Zealand is the perfect ‘education destination’ to connect classroom learning to their real-world applications. And our local knowledge & field expertise ensure our groups have well targeted, effective & enjoyable educational programs.
Our vision is: 'To enhance New Zealand through educational travel'.
