Woodbury Safari Lodge is a brand new 11,000 square foot 5 star first class custom Lodge and is 100% owned by the Fraser family.  


Woodbury Safari Lodge is situated in the beautiful province of South Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand.

The lodge is set on 10 acres in a private enclave of native Totara trees on the south bank of the Waihi river.   The town of Geraldine (population 3000) is a short drive away and offers all the services required including excellent cafes, restaurants & banks.

This location is a huge advantage for our trophy hunting business, as we are not situated up a remote mountain valley on a ranch (which means that likely you have to hunt the same property every day). This location also allows us to offer outstanding non-hunter activities and tour options.


Each day we are able to choose our hunt destination depending on the weather and species desired.  On any one day, guests at the lodge may be hunting on several different areas for Stag, Tahr, Chamois, Fallow etc, while non-hunters explore the local sights and shopping.


The lodge is base of operations for Fraser Safaris New Zealand.  


Woodbury Safari Lodge represents the new standard for hunting lodges in New Zealand.  Spacious luxury comfort for single hunters, couples, famiies & groups.  Exclusive whole lodge booking is available by arrangement. 6 guest bedrooms (King & double Queen rooms) each with private bathroom and individual climate control.  All meals & soft drinks provided. Each bedroom opens onto the sunny spacious hardwood deck.  The lodge is one level (wheelchairs OK) except for a large loft area in the trophy room which is setup with a large screen TV & surround sound.  Facilities include free wireless network, guest laundry, private bar, kitchen open to guests, rooms serviced daily.


For hunters, staying at the lodge is included in the hunting rate, non-hunters it is US$250/night cost >


Nightly dining in the Trophy Room.  Soup/salad/bread to start then choose from a changing variety of local farm/ocean fresh meat (venison, beef, lamb, seafood & poulty) & local produce. Topped off by a favorite Kiwi dessert.  


Breakfast choice of cooked and/or continental, hunter’s lunch (sandwiches, fruit and cakes), lodge lunch is a tasty “cook’s choice”.
