Then you will be transferred to our hunting area. A normal hunting day will start with an early breakfast before heading into the hills in search of your stag. It is likely you will not return until late afternoon. During your hunting days you also have the option of hunting rams, pigs or Fallow Buck. The evenings will be spent in the company of other guests and your Monarch guides. All meals and beverages included.

After breakfast you will collect your hire car and head south to Aoraki National Park, home to New Zealand’s largest mountain Mount Cook. Your accommodation here is at the luxurious Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat set in 66 hectares of forest wilderness. Nestled between turquoise blue waters of Lake Pukaki and the majestic Ben Ohau ranges. During your stay here you will experience a scenic helicopter flight with a picnic on a glacier and an incredible evening of stargaving with the host of your lakeside retreat villa. Breakfast & dinner included.

Continuing south, you will pass through stunning mountain and lake scenery to arrive in the famous Gibbston wine region. You will spend a night at one of the many boutique wineries and sample some of their unique wines and delectable cuisine. Dinner included.

Days 8 – 9

A short drive to Queenstown, we recommend you visit the famous AJ Hackett Bungy Bridge where, if you are brave enough, you can choose to jump! Your stay in Queenstown is at the private and sophisticated Rees Hotel where you will spend the next 2 nights situated right on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. You will have time over to wander the shops, relax in your hotel or explore Queenstown’s vibrant cafe scene but one day trip not to be missed is the Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound. Regularly listed by Conde Nast and Trip Advisor as one of the top places in the world to visit, towering mountain landscapes and lush rainforest descend into the southern ocean to create huge fjords peppered with extra-ordinary waterfalls. Our price includes a day trip to Milford Sound from Queenstown and including a nature cruise.

Day 10

This has been an epic New Zealand trip, immersing you in the South Island’s massive alpine environment, the scenic big lakes and the vibrant local scenes of Christchurch and Queenstown.

Probably the best outfitted hunt I have ever been on. Beautiful lodge and property. The guides were top notch and extremely professional. The food was excellent and everybody in the organization was a pleasure to deal with. They all went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.


“What an experience! Luke’s knowledge of the station we hunted and his consummate skills as a guide made for fantastic hunting.  We saw lots of game and two spectacular stags, one of which became mine. Thanks Luke and the Monarch staff for making my hunt of a lifetime happen. We will do this again!”

What a epic trip New Zealand has been, just finished up hunting. We took 24 animals, Henryshot 5 different species, dad took 4 different species and I took 11 different species. Stag,Wapiti, Goat, Boar, Sheep, Turkey, Whitetail, Wallaby, Fallow, Tahr, and Chamios. Monarch New Zealand is simply the best in the business thanks Luke Romano for running a top shelf outfitting business, cheers!!

Thanks Luke! We had an awesome weekend. Jonty was pumped after shooting his first Red Stag and sticking his first pig.

Whether it was trophy hunting or meat harvesting, going hunting with Luke was a great time and really successful too. And the locations that Monarch takes you too were some of the best landscapes in New Zealand!!!! Our hunting adventure was a real experience in such a beautiful part of the world.
