For three generations, the Stewart Family has protected and preserved what we believe is the finest habitat for world-class trophy game animals in New Zealand, providing the discerning hunter with the terrain and space needed for a fair chase trophy experience.

Originally Leithen Valley Hunts was started by Alan and Sue Stewart more than 30 years ago. Now daughter Rachel Stewart continues the tradition of providing quality hunts with a true New Zealand family feel. Rachel has spent her life dreaming of taking over the business and now she’s living her dream.

Our lodges are located in the South Island of New Zealand. Within a few hours, you can experience rugged coastlines, rocky mountain peaks and fertile river valleys cloaked with dense forest.

Our guides know the Leithen Valley area extensively and work hard to give you a hunt that is both memorable and enjoyable. As an experienced hunter, you’ll know that skill plays a big part in any hunt. Our guides are there to make sure luck, coupled with your own experience, dedication and good equipment, is on your side.

The most important part of our hunting operation is our individual attention from start to finish; your hunt will be attended to personally by Rach, owner and operator of Leithen Valley Hunts New Zealand. We invite you to become part of our Leithen Valley Family and enjoy our passion for hunting.
