Located in Fairlie in central South Island, New Zealand Safaris primary hunting lodge, All Seasons Lodge, is within 5 to 30 minutes of our hunting properties…and 20 minutes to an hour to major New Zealand sightseeing attractions.

In close proximity to so many sightseeing opportunities, we can help you tailor your hunting experience to include fun activities for family and non-hunters that will be truly memorable. We’ll pair you with an experienced local sightseeing guide to build your itinerary, allowing you to go at your own pace and see the sights relevant to you.
