We have two locations; Safari River (Riverside) located on the Beaver River in Meadow Lake & Safari River Lakeside located on Green Lake. The two lodges are less than 45 minutes apart (driving time). Our riverside lodge is located near the confluence of two rivers, the Beaver and the Meadow. The location for both lodges was chosen for its proximity to both huntable and watchable wildlife and are truly unique and special places of unspoiled beauty. Situated on the edge of the forest line, our lodges provide easy access to the agricultural lands to the south and to the lakes, rivers and forest uplands to the North that are rugged and wild. There is a large Ducks Unlimited Marsh Project near the Beaver River lodge which attracts a wide range of wildlife right to the front lawn! At night, the northern lights dance in the sky and coyotes can be heard in the distance.
A visit to one of our lodges is not just a fantastic hunting trip, It is an experience to remember!

Guns & Ammunition
A Non-resident Firearms Declaration Form is required for a cost of $25 (Canadian). To save time, we recommend you complete the form ahead of time.
– Declare firearms in writing to a customs officer at the point of entry to Canada, using the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration (form RCMP 5589).
– If there are more than three firearms, a Non-Resident Firearm Declaration Continuation Sheet (form RCMP 5590) should be added.
– The declaration form should be filled out prior to arrival at the point of entry, in order to save time. However, it should not be signed before arriving at the entry point, as a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) customs officer must witness the signature.
– Once the declaration has been confirmed by the CBSA customs officer, it acts as a licence for the owner and it is valid for 60 days. The declaration can be renewed for free, providing it is renewed before it expires, by contacting the Chief Firearms Officer (call 1-800-731-4000) of the relevant province or territory.
Pre-processing for non-resident hunters: CBSA pre-processing for non-resident hunters who wish to process their firearm prior to entering Canada (this option is only available if the hunter is coming into Canada through Saskatoon, in other words direct from the United States, landing in Saskatoon)

Air Travel/Security: Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) wants to make sure hunters know the rules at pre-board screening to avoid unpleasant surprises at the airport security checkpoint.
