Wildlife Argo Tour

The Otago Peninsula headland is arguably the most precious wildlife habitat in New Zealand and the farm owned by the Reid family is right on the forefront of this headland.

Here, amidst truly spectacular scenery, the world’s rarest penguins, Hoiho the yellow-eyed, the little blue penguins, the New Zealand fur seals and the Stewart Island Shags all live in harmony. And you can experience this wildlife on Natures Wonders cross-country tour in an 8-wheel drive all terrain Argo vehicle.

  • Your tour begins at the reception area, 1 kilometre from the Natures Wonders entrance where your fully trained local guide explains safety proceedures, then its off in the Argo for an exhilerating experience!
  • First stop is the mythical “Maori’s Footprint” location, which offers panoramic views over the Otago Peninsula
  • Descending from 189 metres above sea level, we stop, during the nesting season, at a breeding colony of Cormorants (Spotted Shags) nestled on a rugged cliff face rising from the crashing Pacific Ocean waves below
  • Continuing on we arrive at a hide for a very close encounter with a breeding colony of New Zealand Fur Seals and their pups basking on the rocks and swimming in the pools in front of you
  • From here a beach-front ride takes us to a covered, all weather track leading down to a purpose-built hide on Penguin Beach to view little blue penguins in their nests (in season) and spot the rare Yellow-eyed Penguin in their nest or on the beach
  • Your guide will provide interesting and informative commentary throughout the tour. We then return to the highest point on the farm, 201 metres above sea level from where you have spectacular 360 degree views of this beautiful peninsula
