365 reasons to be happy

At STRAVON, we're always in season, we're either hunting or we're fishing.
In saying this... mid March to mid August is our prime hunting time and November to February is our prime fishing time.
For more indepth information on our fishing season, please visit our fly fishing page.  
Feel free to contact the office with any enquiries regarding your hunting and/or fishing preferences with your preferred travel dates.

  • The Weather

    +

    What we say to our guests is that they need to layer their clothes so that if the day starts out nice and then in the afternoon turns for the worst they are prepared for both situations. With New Zealand being a island nation we can experience weather from all of the seasons in a 24 hour period, none more so than the areas you’ll find yourself in with us and this is why we pack accordingly.

    STRAVON and it's other sporting destinations are found in regions of New Zealand where the weather and climate can turn for the good or bad within a few short hours. Fortunately, today’s technology with weather updates etc allows us to be updated with Mother Nature’s plans BUT the correct attire - when on safari with STRAVON is absolutely crucial.
