guest options while staying at our lodge

New Zealand - the home of bungy!

Mount Cook - NZ's highest mountain. A great day trip from Woodbury Safari Lodge.

New Zealand is one of the safest countries in the world to visit. No immunization or vaccination shots are required before travel.  Tap water is totally safe to drink & best of all - no snakes!

Each day you may choose to relax at the lodge (in-house massage & spa treatments available in the lodge), go along on the hunt or take a guided day trip from the lodge.  

Woodbury Safari Lodge is in a wonderful location to offer non-hunting guests lots of options for activities on a daily basis.  

These include:

  • Spa treatments in your lodge room (massage, facial, pedicure etc)  link to ILU SPA info

  • Take a short stroll through the native forest and visit our neighbor Eve Wallace at Sandrum House who has a workshop that produces children's wear, fashion accessories and designer furnishings principally from lambskin, calfhide and opossum fur.

  • Visit Geraldine & the surrounding areas for shopping, cafes & sightseeing

  • Photo tours of magnificent mountain, lakes & glacial river scenery

  • Horse treks with Peel Forest Horse Trekking

  • Scenic flights over the Southern Alps & Main Divide with Air Safaris

  • Helicopter charter from the lodge heli-pad on the front lawn

  • The Tin Shed (supplier of unique Kiwi clothing and accessories) 

  • Lake Tekapo Hot Springs & Spa (a very popular day trip for the ladies!) 

  • Local farm tour - just around the corner from the lodge, to see sheepdogs working and a sheep being shorn of it's wool


This is just a small  list of activities we can plan for non-hunter members of your safari!
