Overview

See the birds up close on an airconditioned 4WD Cape Kidnappers Gannet Safaris with Return Shuttle group tour for three hours departing the Napier I-Site, Hastings or Havelock North in New Zealand. You will journey through the 2,500-hectare Cape Kidnappers Station for an overland tour across riverbeds and through steep gullies with spectacular views to the world’s biggest accessible gannet colony. The station has a wonderful history and today is a working sheep and beef farm. It is also home to a 200-hectare enclosure where introduced Kiwi and Tuatara thrive in a native bush conservatory protected from predators with a coast-to-coast fence. The luxury lodge found in the station also boasts a privately-owned world-class golf course.

Arriving at the top of the cliffs, pause and survey the cliffs’ incredible geology and admire the commanding views across Hawke’s Bay. You’ll also be close enough to the gannets once at the colony to better see their distinctive eye-markings and golden crowns.

With the adults and chicks just a few feet away from you, marvel at the gannets nesting, preening and performing their courtship rituals.

When the 'Cape Kidnappers Regular Tour and Return Shuttle' option is purchased, pick ups are at 8.45am or 12.45pm depending on which tour is selected and the pick up is from the I-Sites.
