When passing through New Zealand customs, please ensure your hunting boots are clean. New Zealand places significant importance on global trade in agricultural products, requiring strict measures to protect against pests and diseases that could harm our agricultural and horticultural industries. Keeping your hunting boots clean is vital to maintain biosecurity and protect our country’s agricultural ecosystem.
While hunting during the day, we recommend comfortable and practical clothing. For the evenings, pack casual and warm layers, as the nights can get chilly.
Your safety and comfort are our top priorities at Glen Dene. If you have any questions or need further guidance on your packing list, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our breathtaking wilderness for an incredible hunting experience. Get ready to embrace the adventure!
