Cape Kidnappers safari experience takes you to Hawke’s Bay Cape Kidnappers Gannet Colony – the world’s largest, most accessible Gannet nesting place.
It’s the only way of being taken right to within a few feet of these remarkable birds – there is no walking required!
Gannet Safaris has been guiding visitors over Cape Kidnappers for over 35 years. Our safaris are the only way to be driven right to within a few feet of these remarkable birds.
You will travel in comfort in our air conditioned 4 x 4 wheeled 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
