Captivating champion divers and masters of the sea, Gannets are true acrobats. Brace yourself for a journey that takes you from coast to cape, to the world’s largest and most accessible Gannet colony in the beautiful Hawke’s Bay. Discover the mesmerising birds in an almost face to face experience and take in the stunning vista of the area.
For over 50 years, Cape Kidnapper’s Gannet Safaris has been the only tour to take you overland, bringing you close and personal with the fierce seabirds and their thriving environment for nesting and breeding.
Starting off at our Te Awanga base, our fleet of 4×4 vehicles will take you through pristine coastline, working farm, native bush to New Zealand’s largest, privately-owned nature reserve. The guided safari will take you on a stunning discovery tour to the top of Cape Kidnappers’ Gannet Colony where you will come to encounter over 20,000 gannets. Watch the seabirds in their natural habitat – nesting, preening, dancing swooping and diving into the sea right before your eyes.
With the vast Pacific Ocean in sight, beneath the land of the long white clouds, and surrounded by beautiful, winged wonders; discover the land, sea and sky of Aotearoa with Gannet Safaris Overland Safari.
