If being more adventurous is on your New Year's resolution list, look no further! Maui is blessed with an abundance of gorgeous beaches, hidden valleys and dramatic viewpoints. But not all of these are accessible from a car. For those who want to get off the beaten path, Zazu Campers ( will have you hitting the road in style.


Founder Spencer Wright, a resident of Paia, designed Zazu to give his guests a local-style experience. Each one of its customized Jeeps comes equipped with a top-of-the-line Tepui Ruggedized Kukenam rooftop tent, which sleeps up to four people and is durable enough to withstand Maui’s varied climates. Zazu has gone the extra mile to make planning for travelers to our island easy: Your vehicle will be waiting for you at the airport, and the rental includes all the gear you may need for a weekend of glamping and snorkeling. Take the back road to Hana or scale the slopes of Haleakala with Zazu—just plan ahead as the Jeeps book up quickly.
