Into the wild

Te Wāipounamu - "Waters of Greenstone" is the maori name for the South Island of NEW ZEALAND.

The South Island has all the qualities of a continent, effectively a floating fossil of Gondwanaland it is one of the last, great, untouched wilderness areas* found in the Southern Hemisphere. Close to 3 million hectares of this is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Area. "Te Wahipounamu – South West New Zealand" as it is offically known as encapsulates Fiordland, Mt Aspiring, Westland Tai Poutini and Aoraki/Mount Cook National Parks; which make up a natural wilderness that is quite simply as good as it gets. Beneath its highest peaks & icefields lie hundreds of untamed rivers, streams & spring creeks that course their way through vast stretches of undisturbed wilderness with a high abundance of fish & game.

*Stravon Safaris holds concessions to land on conservation lands throughout the South Island, providing further wilderness experiences.
