Quality hunts over quantity hunts.

It`s about personalized high quality experiences, not budget hunts, or high turn over hunts. From the properties to meals, guiding, rooms and service New Zealand Safaris is second to none. As a small, family run business we believe in a genuine, personal hunting experience for each hunter, family or group. One hunt at a time.
