Let me start by saying that hunting has been in my blood ever since I killed my first doe deer in the Florida Everglades back in 1965 when I was 15 years old. Many hunting seasons have come and gone but my passion for the outdoors and hunting has never gotten old. I’m a lot slower now but my adrenaline kicks on when I’m hunting.I could go on and on but to keep it short. After many hunting years in several states, Canada and Spain I decided to hunt in New Zealand after visiting it about 3 years ago. Describing this place is not easy. Heaven on earth might be close. Anyway after doing my homework visiting every single outfitter at the Dallas convention a couple of years ago it was easy to decide that Four Seasons Safaris was the place to go. They have a family base operation and meeting Shane, his wife Vanessa and son Sam at the show my decision was made. Waiting over a year for the trip was the hardest. I had my bag packed and ready to go a month in advance.                                                                                I rate this outfitter above 5 stars if I could but it stops there) I got my Tahr and stag and my daughter got a fallow deer. The memories during that week will last forever and I’m already planning to join my son when he finally makes it there.
I’ll be more than happy to share additional information with anyone planing to go to New Zealand to hunt with them. Trust me you will not be disappointed. I guaranteed it. I feel we are friends for life now.

“I hunted Red Stag, Chamois, and Tahr with Shane at Four Seasons Safaris. I was there with my wife and 5 children we had a wonderful experience. I was successful in harvesting all three trophies and my wife and kids love the helicopter tours and Jet Boat Ride. Christine and Robbie were fantastic, The service was great and the food was as good as any fine restaurant. We had a great time.”

“One of the best experiences we’ve had. Shane, Vanessa, Sam and Chopper were awesome! Took great care of my wife and daughter while my son and I were on our adventure. Couldn’t do better than Four Seasons Safaris if you are going to New Zealand!!!”

- Grant Gilliland

The most wonderful Holiday experience!!!! We would recommend this trip to anyone! Shane, Vanessa, and their son Sam were the best hosts ever! The hunting experience, and the welcoming friendship made, will be in our hearts forever! The guest house was wonderful! Chef Robbie and his wife Christine made sure that we had everything that we wished for! Four Seasons Safari’s is your Holiday you will never forget!

Life changing is how we would describe our trip to New Zealand and Four Seasons Safaris! Shane and Vanessa were unbelievable host, from helping us book our first Red Stag/Tahr hunt to making hotel and dinner reservations around the South Island. Red Stag hunt was awesome however thrilling helicopter ride for Tahr will be experience we will never forget. In addition to the large game hunting, stalk, and so many laughs and special memories that were made, we were treated to a real back woods excursion for a couple of nights deep in the Four Seasons hunting lodge. The mountain ranges and rustic cabin make this a part of the paradise that is Shane’s to share with his quest. You won’t go hungry either. Shane is a 4-star chef in the kitchen, and he comes equipped, providing many memorable meals that won’t be forgotten. We are counting the days until we return!! YOLO

“What a great time. Scenery, people, accommodations, food and the hunting were all wonderful. It’s a long way to go, but worth every mile. I brought my wife and she had a wonderful time too. Shane runs a first-class operation and will be sure that your every need is met. Be sure to ask them about their special possum hunts too.”

- Jackie Dukes

Exceeded my expectations. Shane and Vanessa are great people and this was the best experience I’ve ever had with a guided hunt. My guide, Kyle, put up with me for 4 days hiking in the mountains and made sure we found the bull Tahr I really wanted. Absolutely recommend!
