That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Feel like you've stepped into a painting during this two hour nature safari in the spectacular Wild Side Conservation area. Learn about the area's rich history, native flora and fauna and Pohatu's unique penguin conservation efforts as you wind though the picturesque roads.
Witness Mother Nature's splendour during this two hour nature safari in the award-winning Wild Side Conservation area. Departing Akaroa, wind down the picturesque roads and uncover unparalleled views of Akaroa Harbour, the outer coast, farm land and forested hillsides. Along the journey, your expert guide will provide informative commentary about the rich history of Akaroa and the Banks Peninsula, its native flora and fauna and Pohatu's unique penguin conservation program. Upon arrival in Pohatu Bay, receive a warm welcome from the farm's friendly pet sheep, who will be nudging your hands for treats. In season, you'll get to see white flippered penguins up close as you wander around the bay monitoring nesting sites. If you're lucky, you may even get the chance to see some of their rehabilitation efforts like supplemental feeding and swim therapy.
The minivan holds a maximum of nine passengers.
Rainy day policy When living in an island nation like New Zealand, the weather us hard to predict and can quickly change; sunny one minute then pouring with rain the next and this even in the middle of summer. Offering outdoor activities, we may sometimes get rained on. We do not cancel our tours due to rainy days; it is just part of experiencing this wild country. In saying that, all of our best wildlife viewing is usually when it's raining, especially on our Evening penguin tours. Just remember to always bring a rain coat to New Zealand, just in case. We all hope for a beautiful sunny day but rain or shine our guides will give you an authentic New Zealand experience. In consideration of the above no refund can be expected in the event of rain.
Please wear comfortable shoes and sun protection.
This experience departs from Akaroa and takes place in Pohatu.
