"I have hunted with Ewan of Southern Lakes Safaris multiple times solo and with a friend and have always came away with unparalleled hunting experiences.  Ewan has tailored the hunts perfectly to our requests from fly in helicopter hunts for Chamois and Tahr to hike in backpack camping hunts for free range Stag.  Southern Lakes Safaris has provided us the completely catered style hunt while also guiding on us on hunts where we have wanted more of a "do it yourself" experience.  With Southern Lakes you will get the type of hunt and experience YOU want whereas  with so many other outfitters I have experienced in the past the hunt is dictated on their terms.

I love having an owner/operator/guide who truly is a hunter's hunter who is just as passionate about the hunt as I am and not just someone doing a job to make money.  If you want to experience the "Real and Wild New Zealand" I would highly recommend Southern Lakes Safaris."
