New Zealand Safaris specialises in professionally guided free range hunting, based out Fairlie in the central South Island our free range hunting is conducted on some of New Zealand’s most iconic high country cattle and sheep ranches. These properties vary in size and vegetation from 3000 acres of rolling hills with native timbered valleys, to extensive 60,000 acre properties that have steep mountains, river bed valleys and patches of native trees and bush. Some of our properties hold other wild free range species such as Bull Tahr, Alpine Chamois and Fallow Bucks. 2015 saw 100% success on our Red Stag hunts with the largest being a 8x8.

The Red Stags on these properties are genuine wild deer with antler formations of 5x5–8x8 and at times bigger. The ruts starts around late March–End of April. This hunt is for those who want to experience a true wild deer hunt in New Zealand with plentiful game numbers, high quality trophies, and a desire to take in what hunting is really all about.

New Zealand Safaris hunting properties are all within 15-45 mins of both our lodges with the option to stay in one of our cabins which puts you right in the heart of the hunting.

Additional animals and days maybe added to this hunt, non hunters are welcome and we can add in some sight seeing during the hunt so you can take in this beautiful part of the world.

Our Point of Difference

Genuine Hunting, Outfitter and Guides.

When we say we specialise in free range hunting, that’s what we actually do. And all on private exclusive land with high quality ‘wild’ animals.

Genuine Outfitter and guides, we live and work on the land. This is what we love to do and pride ourselves on what we have. We let our actions and experience do the talking for us. 70% repeat clients/ friends.

One hunting party at a time in the lodge, or hunting on a property. This is not all about numbers, we’re focused on the quality of the hunting experience with us.

New Zealand Safaris has long-term management leases in partnership with the ranch owners,these are huge places that are home to animals in their natural habitat. They are not all restricted by high fences.

Hunters are able to hunt most of our free-range animals from our hunting lodges, and any game estate animals.

We do not require a helicopter for Tahr and Chamois due to the size of our areas and well formed roads that can cater to all levels of fitness saving thousands.

We have our own 3500 Hectare Estate hunting for those that wish to go after huge SCI scored Red Stag’s, Fallow Buck’s, and Rams with a luxury mountain cabin onto.

Professional guides – we are an active member of the New Zealand Professional Guides Assoc., SCI, Wild Sheep Foundation.

We welcome non-hunters and families and can organise activities to look after everyone.

New Zealand Safaris personally Outfit’s on all New Zealand game animals and Bird species, including the North Island. And free range Water Buffalo in Australia from June–October.
