Description

A Nature Safari Grab your camera and get ready to score some impressive shots from the top of Banks Peninsula as you head toward the working sheep farm and penguin colony habitat at Pohatu/Flea Bay. Along the way you will see the beautiful Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve and Akaroa Head Reserve. Your adventure begins as you hop into a rugged, 4WD vehicle and traverse over one of the highest and most scenic passes along the Banks Peninsula. Stand at the crater rim of the ancient Akaroa Volcano to capture the stunning volcanic coastal cliffs and gaze out over the mesmerizing Akaroa Harbor and Pacific Ocean. Be sure to get photos of the charming lighthouse as you stop at the Akaroa Head Reserve. Walk through the secluded red beech forest at Tutakakahikura Scenic Reserve and keep an eye - and ear - out for the myriad of birds. At Pohatu/Flea Bay conservancy you will have an opportunity to photograph and pet sheep and see playful little penguins in nesting sites (season is August to mid February). If you're lucky you might even be there for a rare appearance of a yellow-eyed penguin! Learn about lizard conservation and what the conservancy is doing to protect and nurture the close to 2,500 strong penguin colony. This family-friendly tour includes coffee or tea and delicious muffins. If you love animals and love photographing gorgeous scenery, this is the tour for you!
