My experience here with Kaweka Hunting was way better than I had ever dreamed of. It’s been a 25 year dream of mine to do the New Zealand Red Stag hunt. Just the overall quality of it all was breath taking! The whole staff team makes me feel like I'm part of the family. The food was super impressive. The game there was all very tempting. I will be back!

I can't thank you all enough for making our journey, such a wonderful memory. You all are just great people to be around, and the journey with you will be in our memories for ever. What a great adventure we had with you. It began with being picked up in Napier and it lasted until we were dropped off in Napier at the airport. Each day was an adventure, Pat, Lee, and Marcus worked very hard to keep us entertained out in the bush. Suzie was great! What a hoot! Love that gal, she is always so cheery.

The meals prepared for us were top quality, I still don't know half of what I ate, but it was all good. Thank you Dan!

Rob, you are quite a busy guy keeping your lodge running so smoothly and making sure all is just right. I wish I would have had the opportunity to just chat with you. It seems we were always coming in late with an animal in the cart or we were just tired. Whatever the case that is my only regret. I thank you for Tim, Janelle, and myself for treating us to a great time from daylight till dawn and later. THANKS!

We had a wonderful hunting experience on our visit to Kaweka Hunting in March 2013! Just imagine sitting on beautiful rolling hills, listening to mating calls from several species of animals. That's Kaweka Hunting! Our guide, Pat, helped Al get a fantastic trophy Sika Deer and I, a beautiful white Red Stag! We didn't even know Red Stag came white! Daniel delighted us with his culinary skills and Suzie took us on a beautiful nature walk. There are a lot of things to see and do in the area. We are planning a trip back to Kaweka Hunting for Sambar and Rusa. The accommodations were first rate. Rob Holt, owner, even has a hot tub available after a long days hunt!

Just writing you to thank you again for the experience of a lifetime! My hunt with Kaweka Hunting was above and beyond my expectations. The quality  and wariness of the animals made for one of the best bow hunting trips I have had and the accommodation's were second to none. The food was amazing!

Thank You again!!

In April of 2013 I visited the good folks at Kaweka Hunting in NZ for the second time, in quest of another Red Deer with a different formation of antlers than the more ‘typical’ rack I was able to take on the previous hunt.

Rob Holt and his staff of guides put forth a great effort and, after 3 days of stalking, seeing many quality animals or various varieties, some near shot opportunities, and unfortunately a couple of  misses....we were able to complete the perfect stalk and drive an Epek Broadhead through this awesome animal. Epek did its job well as I have never dropped an animal of this size so quickly!

In addition to this great hunting, our group enjoyed ‘second to none’ gourmet cooking, top notch lodging, and great conversation with some very nice people on Rob’s staff.

If the conversation ever slowed, we would just stir Suzie up a bit and the laughter was back on!

“This adventure is highly recommended to anyone looking for a great adventure with some great folks in a beautiful country. “ 

Thanks again for a great time!!!!
