STRAVON is a private estate with exclusive sporting rights over the entire area.
Nestled in South Canterbury's famed Hunters Hills, Stravon captures that quintessential outdoor experience superbly. Beautiful forests of native bush & trees all assist in helping produce a world class environment for our wildlife to exist in. The Hunters Hills date back to the Paleozoic Age and even though it took millions of years for Stravon to make an impression on this landscape... we reckon it'll take far less to leave one on you.

Beautiful forests of native bush full of bird song await in an environment teeming with wildlife. This isn't the kind of place where you'll struggle to find an adventure, the Estate caters to all ages & fitness levels BUT make no mistake, Stravon is big country... this landscape where Moa once roamed, dates back to the Paleozoic Age and even though it took millions of years for Stravon to make an impression here... we think it'll take far less to leave one on you.
Whether it's through crosshairs or the taking of a fly, you'll discover there's something for everyone yet providing plenty of distractions along the way. World-class hunting destination aside, Stravon has some of New Zealand’s greatest natural wonders (incl. rivers!) quite literally at her back doorstep and we'd love to help you discover the New Zealand we know and love.Stravon Safaris offers hunting, fly fishing & travel expertise in the following areas:Professionally guided hunting & fishingHiking

When You Experience It. You Get It.
YOU'RE IN SAFE HANDS
In collaboration with our Enviro Gold & OutdoorsMark Awards and with your safety in the forefront of our minds we have created the Wilderness Area Response Plan or W.A.R.P. The W.A.R.P is exactly that, a response plan or blueprint for your hunt. Covering everything from a bee sting to your worse case scenario whilst out in the field and under our guidance.
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 our other sporting destinations are found in regions where the weather & 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 a Stravon Safari is absolutely crucial.
