Die Kaimanawa Range (oder Kaimanawa Ranges) liegen zentral auf der Nordinsel Neuseelands. Sie grenzen im Norden an die westlichen Teile der Kaweka Range und erstrecken sich vom Südende des Lake Taupo ca. 50 km bis zu den Ruahine Range im Süden.

Durch das Tongariro Vulkanplateau vom Regen abgeschirmt, ist der nördliche Bereich so arm an Niederschlag, dass die State Highway 1 dort „desert road“ und das Gebiet Rangipo Desert genannt wird.

Die weiter südlich gelegenen Gebiete der Kaimanawa Range sind weniger unwirtlich; große Teile der Landschaft befinden sich in Privatbesitz, was eher untypisch für neuseeländische Berglandschaften ist.
