Join the tour on a 4WD safari to the spectacular, award-winning Wild Side Conservation area! Along the way, learn the region's history from your local guide. Stop for photo opportunities with views of Akaroa harbor and the Pacific Ocean. Learn about the area’s rich history, native flora and fauna, and Pohatu’s unique penguin conservation program. The Nature Safaris offer stunning views of Akaroa Harbour, the outer coast, farmland, and forested hillsides. Arrive at a local family's farm where you can meet, friendly pet sheep and see White-Flippered penguins as we monitor nesting sites. If you’re lucky, you may even get the chance to see some of the rehabilitation efforts such as supplemental feedings and swim therapy.
