Safari Club International has chapters in many countries around the world.

Safari Club International boasts chapters in numerous countries across the globe, each dedicated to promoting hunting and conservation on an international scale.

The New Zealand Chapter was established in 1989/90 by Malcom North, along with a dedicated group including Gary Joll and Terry Jacobs. Their vision was to create a hunting organisation that would not only represent the sport of hunting in New Zealand to global standards but also advocate for game animal management and engage in political activities supportive of hunting and conservation efforts.

Over the past thirty-two years, we’ve built a proud legacy marked by significant achievements. Among these accomplishments is the installation of the bronze tahr statue at Lake Pukaki in 2014. This landmark, funded by hunters and notably Safari Club New Zealand, has become a beloved attraction for tourists and locals alike. It commemorates the gifting of five Tahr to New Zealand by the Duke of Bedford in 1904, celebrating our rich hunting heritage.



We support the Fiordland Wapiti Foundation (FWF) The Sika Foundation with donations of cameras and traps and join with NZDA, Game Animal Council, Profession Hunting Guides (NZPHG) and other interest groups in lobbying for hunting and conservation.

We run an annual fundraising dinner and auction with guest speakers in conjunction with the Sika Show to offer hunters the ultimate immersion in all things hunting.
Members of Safari Club New Zealand can also join the USA parent organisation Safari Club International and receive their magazine and newsletter as well as the opportunity to visit their annual conventions.

Produce three editions of the Safari News Magazine, a colour hunting publication with national and international hunting features, latest news and updates from the president.  The magazine is mailed directly to you and has a regular prize draw in each issue.

Every year at the Annula dinner prestigious trophies are awarded in the following categories: Best New Zealand Trophy, Best International Trophy and Young Hunter award. plus prizes for the various photographic winners.
