Hunting Outfitters South Island NZ

Be exposed to some absolutely stunning scenery, from open rolling country, to the steep forested foothills that form the barrier between the plains and the spectacular snow-covered peaks of the Southern Alps.

New Zealand Hunting Lodges

Challenging, and conditions often harsh. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable and rewarding it can be. However, we will tailor a hunt to your ability and level of fitness. Our safaris use 4×4 vehicles, polaris rangers, jet boats and helicopters to access prime hunting locations and stalking is carried out on foot.

Non-hunting partners can join us on the hunt if they wish, or we can arrange an unlimited number of alternative activities for them, from sightseeing to skiing in-season in the mountain range that towers above the resort where your outfitter is based ‘Terrace Downs’.
