Kid what? Yes, Cape Kidnappers. Located in Hawke’s Bay,  Cape Kidnappers is a 26-room property anchored by an eye-pleasing lodge with beautiful grey stone walls and rugged wooden ceiling beams, and it is also a working sheep and cattle farm. Yay animals! Guests can take a guided tour in a comfortable car or ATVs! To get your adrenaline pumping, you can also skeet shoot, go for a hike or mountain biking! The owner’s cottage with 4 deluxe bedrooms is available for families or groups as it can house up to 8 people!


Up for a little animal discovery? The Farm at Cape Kidnappers have an exclusive Kiwi Discovery Walk experience where you can view the nation’s treasured bird! Because the kiwi is a semi-nocturnal secretive bird, few New Zealanders have seen their national bird in the wild.Tours are arranged with an experienced guide to ensure the safety of the kiwis. Guests are transferred from the Lodge and taken to a site where they walk for up to an hour to locate the kiwi’s habitat. Guests can observe the guide checking the kiwi’s transmitter and watch it being weighed and measured. Guests will have the opportunity to hold the shy flightless bird, and take photographs.
