The all terrain vehicles get you to the wildlife without disturbing it. Situated on private land with views of private beaches where the Penguins are free to roam without fear of human contact. We saw Blue Penguins, Yellow eyed penguins, fur seals and an elephant seal thanks to our very knowledgable guide who could answer all our questions and find... More

Recommended by a Airbnb host we visited this sheep farm/nature preserve at the tip of Otago Pen. The owners, Perry and his wife, see to all the guests and give you an experience that no glitzy tour venue ever could. You ride across the sheep pastures in an 8 wheel drive Argo and visit several remote sites. We saw yellow... More

Just happened to go to the end of the peninsular and found this cafe. Got talking to the owner who sold us on the idea of a safari rude to see penguins and seals. Next minute we were dressed in heavy jackets and loaded in the back of an all terrain vehicle called an "Argo" bouncing across the headlands. This... More

A beautiful one hour ride. We did it with Perry, the owner of this place. He is very enthusiastic about his place and very knowledgeable. We had a private tour for the 4 of us and it was fantastic. We saw the awesome scenery from Taiaroa Head, some Cormorants, Seals and penguins (In their nests). Thank you perry.

Our tour guide was Perry. He and his staff did an amazing job with our group of 24 and 3 - 4 wheel vehicles. He and his staff were passionate about these beautiful animals/birds. Their love for the animals/birds came through as they talked about them, and all that has been done to assure the animals are not disturbed by... More

This tour was amazing! They provide heavy jackets for the cold and the 4 wheel vehicles that they take you around in are so much fun - they even go whomping through the mud! We did not get to see the yellow-eyed penguins because it was the wrong season but we got to get up close and personal with a... More

We were so glad we went to Natures Wonders for the buggy ride to see the seals/penguins but were disappointed that on an extremely cold day in December the fire wasn't lit - it makes such a difference to the ambiance of a place. Food OK for a snack/brunch.
