I’m often asked what sets us apart and my answer is always the same. 'It's the experience of the hunt' with your own local New Zealand hunting guides and the diversity and quality of private land we hunt on that no other New Zealand hunting outfitters or guides can match.
The story you will tell is about stalking that cunning red stag or glassing up to those old bull tahr. It’s about climbing to the highest peak and finding where the mountains end and where sky begins. It’s about stalking through an ancient forest and feeling like the journey forward is a journey back. The hunt of a lifetime is as much about challenging the cunning game as it is about the journey that led to harvesting it.
I’m a proud New Zealander, born and raised on the South Island, a long time member of the New Zealand Hunting Guides Association, and I’ve spent a lifetime building personal relationships with private landowners to give you access to a hunting experience you’ll never forget. They are, in a word…spectacular. Endless acres and stunning scenery filled with plentiful, high quality game. Decades later, I still guide over 80% of our hunts because I love what I do as much as I love giving personal attention and building a relationship with every client. With New Zealand Safaris you’ll experience a truly customized hunting experience and discover the best of what New Zealand has to offer in the privacy of your own hunting party with one of the highest quality New Zelaand hunting outfitters in the country.
I welcome you to personally get in touch with me & give us the opportunity to discuss further our “Hunting Safari Experience”. It’s a story you’ll be telling for a long time to come.
“Jim you are a very hard working guide and outfitter and it was great my wife could come on the hunts with us. You have have great knowledge of the land and game, that made the hunt a lot of fun. We would like to thank you for the great time we had with New Zealand Safaris.”
“Jim has an intimate knowledge of the animals and their habits. He frequently predicted what the animals were going to do before they did it. In addition, he has a complete knowledge of the tens of thousands of acres he hunts. And now for the good part, Jim is completely focused on your hunt being successful. Jim is the best outfitter-guide I have ever had."
