Te Awanga Tours


Gannet Safaris has been guiding visitors over Cape Kidnappers for over 50 years.  It’s the only tour which drives you to within metres of the remarkable gannets – no walking required -

Ride in style and comfort over picturesque Cape Kidnappers Station in air-conditioned 4 x 4 vehicles – traversing riverbeds, broad rolling pastures, through stands of native bush, steep gullies and breathtaking views. 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 commentary by your tour guide on the farming operation of Cape Kidnappers Station and an introduction to the gannets.
