Nowhere is too far. Time being the most valuable resource, we know that you want to be making the most of your recreational time. Travel is necessary and being comfortable ensures you are fresh on arrival. Our team has a fantastic alliance with providers ensuring we have everything from Private Jet, Helicopter transfers to 4x4 Range Rovers available to get you where you need to be on time, and in luxury.
When under our stewardship, we want you to have the very best in luxury experiences, and that means attending to your every need and requirement. Our knowledge and vast experience ensures that we offer you the very best in all aspects of your trip. We epitomise bespoke, so if you can’t see what you want, please get in touch and we’ll put a package together for you.
FIRST RATE ACCOMMODATION
Matching the right Private House, Sporting Lodge, or Hotel to our client or team is critical in ensuring that any sporting escape is a memorable one, especially when accompanied by non-shooting partners. Our team will ensure your needs are exceeded.
TRAVELLING WITH FIREARMS
If you want to travel and use your own Firearms (highly recommended), there are particular requirements for each country and airline. We have the knowledge and expertise to ensure you have the correct permits, certificates and clearances to make sure your travel is unimpeded.
Please be aware clearances with some documentation can take up to 11 weeks prior to departure.
Although we highly recommend using your own firearm, we can offer a selection of 12 and 20 bore shotguns for shoot days by prior arrangement. When stalking, our guides use quality firearms and optics that you, our client, are more than welcome to use should you not have your own.
We offer fully secure and insured firearm storage should you wish to travel without the hassle of Firearm security in mind or should you wish to leave your firearms with us until your next days shooting or hunting with us.
We recommend to all our clients that they find a cartridge that works for their gun, patterns well and doesn’t make you feel you’ve done six rounds with Mohammad Ali after a day in the field. If you know what that cartridge is, we will ensure that we supply them on your days shooting. If you don’t, we supply Gamebore Black Gold in the UK or Baschieri & Pellagri in New Zealand. Both have the best components ensuring consistent performance.
Our Big Game hunting guides custom load their rifle ammunition if you are using their Firearms, ensuring consistent accurate bullet placement. We recommend Remington centre fire ammunition should you be providing your own firearms.
Taking away a memento of your day is something well worth considering, especially when the chances of bringing down your highest bird, or that world record stag, are so high. We have a number of valued sporting photographers often out documenting our shoot days, and are happy to organise a photographer to work to your brief.
LOADERS, DRIVERS AND ASSISTANTS
We offer a full concierge service to all our clients that can be as simple as providing a 'helping hand' to assist you with feeling at ease on the peg. Loaders carrying your guns and cartridges to fully hosted; driving, loading, organising your aprés shoot requirements and equipment care.
FIREARM SERVICING AND REPAIRS
We highly recommend that you get your firearms serviced regularly. If you would like us to arrange such, we have reputable gunsmiths who can carry out full servicing and repairs should the unthinkable happen in the field.
If you wish to improve your shooting, or have a helping hand on the day, let one of our instructors help you better your experience.
