Aotearoa Safaris offer unique, fair chase or wild and free hunting experiences in New Zealand and Australia.  Hunt across some of the most spectacular scenic terrain in the world, from the volcanic Central Plateau, through the Southern Alps of New Zealand or across Australia’s wild Northern Territory.

Our Hunting Packages are fully inclusive, right from your arrival at the airport.  Travel, meals, skilled local guides and firearms are included.  Customised extra activities, game animal upgrades and luxury accommodation upgrades available. We are more than happy to accommodate couples and non-hunting companions with other interests.  This is your trip, so you make the decisions!

Together with our sister company Blazing Adventures, we offer visitors an authentic, back-country 'Kiwi' experience.  Hunting Packages, Jet Boat Trips, Canoe Tours, Helicopter Rides and Guided Fly Fishing. 

We are based in the centre of Aotearoa New Zealand’s North Island, surrounded by remote, rugged, forested mountains and on the banks of arguably the best trout fishing location in the world, the Whanganui River.
