Rivers South Safaris offer a wide range of hunting to suit everyone, from big game animals, such as the Majestic Red Stag, King of the Mountain Himalayan Bull Tahr, Chamois, Fallow Buck, Arapawa Ram and Wild Boar.

 

FREE RANGE HUNTING

 

All species can be hunted with Rifle and Muzzleloader. The numbers and quality of Red Stag and Fallow Bucks are not as good as those in the hunting Estates. With a 10-12 point Red Stag considered a very good trophy sometimes bigger stags are taken. Free range hunting terrain varies from very gentle farm land were sheep and cattle graze, to rolling hills, to very steep mountains. Good ankle support hunting boots are essential. A very good level of fitness is also required to ensure a much better chance of getting that trophy of a life time. Good optics are probably the second most important thing hunters need to bring with them. The most productive way to hunt in New Zealand is spot and stalk and long periods of time are spent glassing the hunting areas for the best trophy animals available. All Rivers South Safari guides carry spotting scopes and lazer range finders. The best time to hunt free range trophy animals is during their rutting season. Red Stag mid March - mid April. Fallow Buck April - May Chamois May - June, Bull Tahr mid May - Early July. To keep free range Red Stag quality to a premium we only offer 8 - 10 hunts a year.

 

ESTATE HUNTING

 

The Estates that Rivers South Safaris hunt on range in size from 500 to 2000 acres. The terrain ranges from timbered forests to open snow grass and from gentle flats, rolling hills to very steep mountains. Rivers South Safaris offers Estate Hunting for Red Stag, Elk/Wapiti, Fallow Buck, Bull Tahr, Chamois, Arapawa Ram and Feral Goat. All of these animals can be hunted with rifle, bow and muzzleloader. The quality and numbers of estate trophy animals is far superior to those free range especially for Red Stag and Fallow Buck. We are able to achieve this through our strict breeding and management programme and that is why our estate hunting percentages for rifle and muzzleloaders runs at 100%. When bow hunting on Red Stag, Elk/Wapiti, Fallow Buck, Arapawa Ram and Feral Goat we run 100% during the rutting season. With Tahr and Chamois we are at 85 - 90%. The size of the Red Stags on the Estates will range from 300 - 400 SCI and upwards. We can hunt whatever size Stag is required by clients. Spot and Stalk is the most productive way to hunt in the Estates. Hunters need to be aware that Estate Hunting can be as physical and challenging as free range Hunting and Hunters should have a moderate to good level of fitness to give them the best chance at a Trophy of a lifetime.

 

New Zealand has long been regarded as one of the world's best trout fisheries. Every year anglers from all parts of the world travel to New Zealand to fish its crystal clear, snow fed rivers streams and lakes which are inhabited by magnificent rainbow and brown trout. Rivers South Safaris has access to some of New Zealand's finest trout water. Anglers will enjoy the diversity of nymph, to dry fly fishing with 95% of our fishing being spot and stalk. There is nothing more exciting than casting a dry fly upstream and waiting in anticipation for a feeding trout to take your fly on a perfect drift, you then say to yourself God Save the Queen (wait two seconds) and lift, setting the hook and then the fight begins!

 

New Zealand's fishing season opens on the first of October for the central South Island lower country. High country fishing season opens on the first Saturday in November. They both close on the 30th April.
