That said, I think the DK book is better at what it does than this book. I've looked through them both very thoroughly, and while Natl Geo does have some info that DK doesn't go into depth with, I feel that the DK book has better photos that bring to life the country in a more appealing manner, and DK does a better job "fleshing -out" the tourism hot spots than Natl Geo. Both books are full-color, and thus very heavy to lug around NZ.
Neither of these books is similar to either Lonely Planet nor Rough Guide. Both those books are full of detailed minutiae about NZ restaurants, lodging, historical bits, tours, ferries...and all other commercialized info.... whereas Natl Geo and DK are about a colorful overview of NZ, without the details that a traveler NEEDS when actually in New Zealand.
I've spent the past 5 summers in New Zealand writing and photographing guidebooks. After looking through the Natl Geo offering extensively, I still would recommend the DK guidebook to plan an initial trip to NZ...but then also plan on needing a better on-the-ground guidebook or two for when you are actually in New Zealand. Hope this helps!
