  • Hunting New Zealand at High Peak is a sportsman’s dream in every sense of the word. The landscape is spectacular, the hunting terrain challenging yet enjoyable, the people friendly, the rivers full of fish, the game abundant and the trophy species world-class. If you have been here, you’ll know what we mean; If not, it’s time you came. Hunting New Zealand at High Peak is about giving you, the hunter, the basis for a great New Zealand hunting story. After all, being able to relay the experience via a good story is what it’s all about. We think every great hunting story needs three core ingredients:

    • The anticipation of a real adventure in an exotic location

    • The physical and mental challenge of undertaking the hunt

    • The sense of personal achievement in the after-glow of a successful hunt

  • At High Peak we strive to deliver these through a combination of a superior hunting environment, great trophy choice and top quality guiding and hosting. You will earn your trophy, and you’ll be proud to tell others of what you have achieved… and they’ll want to listen.

  • Having thousands of acres of beautiful fair-chase hunting land abundant with game virtually to yourself may sound too good to be true. But at High Peak, that’s exactly what you get. It’s all about you pitting your skills against the trophies you seek – with nothing else standing in your way.
