Guide Bio

Ben started New Zealand Safaris in 2008 after working in the industry as a guide for 5 seasons. His knowledge of the game animals and trophies of New Zealand is second to none. He has spent the whole of his life in the mountains of New Zealand and from a young age wanted to share his amazing experiences with others. He is an exceptionally well known local hunting guide and has exclusive access to the very best hunting properties in the South Island. After a brief time working in the UK where Ben met his wife Lucy they now have two young children and Ben enjoys introducing them all to the outdoors. Ben believes in hard work and dedication and is very excited to share his values and hunting experience with all his visitors. He is a member of the New Zealand Professional Hunting Guides Association and Safari Club International.
