Our Location
& Terrain

We personally own and lease New Zealand’s best quality game estates. The hunting preserve is in undulating back country, covered in native vegetation. There’s excellent cover and plenty of draws and gullies, delivering all the excitement of hunting in raw, untamed terrain without compromising on accessibility.


We have experienced hunting guides who are experts in New Zealand’s back country, delivering the hunting vacation of a lifetime! They are all experts in the terrain, climate and wildlife of the Venator New Zealand Game Preserve.


Our luxury lodge, Cardrona Terraces is located close to our hunting area. Surrounded by the beauty of the Southern Alps, it ls perfect spot to kick back and relax after a big day in the field.


While New Zealand is not restricted by a big game hunting season, we operate from late February to mid-August. Want to know which time of year is best for specific hunts?
