Wanaka – the way life is meant to be
Wanaka has been a holiday destination for generations of New Zealand families with a huge range of outdoor activities using the lakes, rivers and mountains as well as wine tours, spa treatments… and let’s not forget a bit of retail therapy!
‘Our trip to New Zealand was the most unexpected fabulous trip that I have ever been on! I truly thought I’d be hanging out doing a lot of book reading while Brian was off hunting.
I think that I’m the one who had the most fun! You truly filled my week’.

Here’s what one of our clients reported:
‘I had an outstanding hunt with Gerald and Sue. Along with great guiding, great trophies and great scenery, the Telfords are great people and hosts. I have bowhunted much of North America and South Africa and I know a great hunt and experience when I have had one. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the hunting and the excursions in beautiful Wanaka with Sue. The flight to the coast with Sue as pilot was breathtaking and much appreciated and enjoyed. The stags were majestic and magnificent. Thank you Gerald and Sue for an adventure my wife and I will never forget. Please be sure I am on your reference list’
