Whilst bookings for gannet colony tours have closed for the season, the incredible Cape Sanctuary Tour is still operating! Book now via website in bio. 

Venture across the formidable landscape of the Ocean Beach Wilderness Area, the heart of New Zealand’s largest privately owned and operated wildlife sanctuary. Our guides will take you through a journey of past and present, from pre-historic times, early occupation, barren hillsides to luscious coastal forest. Experience the impact of Cape Sanctuary’s conservation efforts in real-time through up-close encounters with takahe and kakariki. Travel high above the Ocean Beach Cliffs, and greet the all-encompassing view of our coastline as you enter our pest-free slice of paradise, the ‘sea bird site’. Learn about Cape Sanctuary’s nationally significant sand-dune restoration, coastal revegetation, species translocations and leading sea-bird restoration projects with a well-deserved drink on the panoramic verandah of our newly built hut. Experience one of Hawke’s Bay’s best kept secrets in this three hour journey!

Gannets aren't the only animal in the spotlight on the Gannet Safari Overland Adventure! 

Over the past decades, the New Zealand fur seal/ kekeno population has made a comeback to the Cape Kidnappers peninsula. These gorgeous sea-dogs often steal a bit of attention away from the takapū, but whose complaining!?

With no prior farming experience yet eager for a change in lifestyle James Gillespie Gordon started his purchase of Clifton station. While the steep and drought prone hillsides provided many challenges, Gordon's perseverance and assistance from local shepherds resulted in great expansion! By 1876 there were ~16,000 sheep on Clifton, becoming a profitable and iconic New Zealand working farm.
