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!
Enjoy an overland safari through the spectacular scenery of Cape Kidnappers Station and see over 20,000 gannets, with their distinctive black eye markings.
Visitors to the colony will see adults and young nesting in serried rows carrying out their daily routine. In the air above your heads these amazing birds with their six foot wing span swoop and dive as they bring back fish. On the ground, the pairs preen and perform the dance of the gannets’ recognition ritual.
Gannet Safaris has been guiding visitors over Cape Kidnappers for over 35 years.
