4X4 Adventure to Largest Gannet Nesting Colony

Take a journey with Gannet Safaris to visit the world’s largest, most accessible Gannet Colony, right here in little old NZ!

Gannet Safaris has been guiding visitors over Cape Kidnappers for over 35 years. The safaris are the only way to be driven right to within a few feet of these remarkable birds. There is absolutely no walking required.

You will travel in comfort in air conditioned 4WD vehicles, through Cape Kidnappers Station – traversing riverbeds, broad rolling pastures, through stands of native bush, steep gullies and breathtaking inclines. There is a stop on the way at a spectacular cliff top with panoramic views of Hawke Bay right across to the Mahia Peninsula. The amazing geology of the area can also be taken in.

The 36km, three hour trip includes a commentary by your tour guide/driver on the farming operation on Cape Kidnappers Station and an introduction to the gannets.

On arrival at the gannets you can stretch your legs and take in the stunning scenery from your position at the cliff’s edge – 100 meters above the ocean. Here your driver/guide will serve you refreshments whilst you enjoy watching the gannets perform around you.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We love a good experience that provides access to something otherwise inaccessible – and when you consider there are 20,000 birds at this colony you start to understand why this is such a highly rated excursion.
