Scenic Nature Safari

Our comfortable 4WD vans will take you over one of the highest passes on Banks Peninsula to Pohatu Marine Reserve. With an experienced local guide you will visit the dramatic outer coast on the wild side and visit the Akaroa Heads Lighthouse Reserve, discover the tranquil surroundings and bird-life of the beautiful Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve. Once down in Pohatu bay enjoy tea, coffee and muffins before taking part in a biodiversity monitoring program of endemic species such as penguins, and wetas.
