About Hunting in New Zealand 

Awatere Safaris offers you hunts for every species of big game and game bird in New Zealand, in both free ranging and extensive high fenced environments. We can hunt all our species with either rifle, muzzle loader or some with bow, although the alpine animals are very difficult to stalk close too, due to the rugged terrain they inhabit and often the lack of cover.



We have access to large tracts of both privately owned and government lands and this ensures you have great opportunity to hunt for large, mature trophies for each species. We have guided many hunters onto world record and top 10 ten trophies in the past and we intend to continue striving for these goals for our clients in the future.  

New Zealand has many diverse landscapes and the animals that inhabit these places often need to be hunted in many different ways. Our guides are carefully selected for their expertise in these fields are amongst the best professional hunters anywhere on the planet. We intend to provide you with the very best hunting experience you could possibly while you are hunting with the team at Awatere Safaris.
