Accommodation at Te Taho Deer ParkStay on a working Deer Farm
Te Taho Deer Park
Te Taho Deer Park has been run as a working deer farm since 1978. We have farmed here since 2001, currently specialising in farming Red deer for their velvet antler, which is used in traditional Asian medicine as well as being used as a health supplement around the world. We also farm Fallow and Whitetail deer. The lodge was built in 2007 and is now the base for our West Coast hunts.
Located 30mins drive north from Franz Josef and 10 mins from Whataroa, the views from the farm look towards the Southern Alps behind the property and the river flats to the West. While staying at the lodge you will be able to relax and enjoy quality New Zealand beverages matched with our wild game inspired cuisine. Wilderness Trophy Hunting is fully dedicated to utilising the trophy animals we hunt, we look forward to seeing you enjoy our specialty game dishes.
Space for the family
We have two private, spacious rooms each with its own en-suite and all amenities provided. The room can be set up as twin or super king and has large glass bi-fold doors to enjoy views of the deer outside and the Southern Alps. We also have a third room which contains bunk beds and is a great option if you are travelling as a family or larger group.
Comfortable Tent Camp
We strive to make your stay in the mountains as comfortable as possible. You can enjoy quality meals and beverages protected from the elements under a large tent fly while taking in the mountain scenery. In the evening bask in the warmth of a camp fire and retire to your spacious Cabelas tent on a comfortable bed roll. Wake to hot pot of coffee or tea and hearty breakfast before heading out on your hunt.
