If you are looking for an outfitter in New Zealand, look no further. Rachel and Olly and the Leithen Valley team did an incredible job for us from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed and cared for during our entire week’s stay. We had great guiding and were able to harvest the animals we came for. I truly feel that they went over and above what we expected to take care of us. The accommodations were superb. The experience was all we hoped for and then some. We will definitely be back. The Tahr are calling. I can feel it in my leg muscles!
The way hunting with an outfitter should be. the whole experience was awesome. the family made me feel totally at home during my stay. my guide was first class and i harvested an excellent mature Tahr, fallow and red stag. the accommodations were extremely nice, much more than you would expect for access to such remote hunting. plenty of quality trophies were seen and much wildlife too. the food was perhaps the best i have had in my travels. beautiful experience from start to finish in one of the most stunning countries on earth. outstanding outfitter who went above and beyond the call of duty for me. cant wait to return! miss the place and people already!
