"Largely inaccessible to regular vehicles, Cape Kidnappers is best explored by Can-Am. Discover this rugged terrain with a personal guide as you travel to the very edges of this vast coastal property. Breathe in the southward views towards Ocean Beach and Bare Island before turning back to unrivalled vistas across the entire farm towards Napier and the surrounding ranges; venture through an old creek bed, across expansive farmland and down to historic Rangaika Beach. Ideal for all age groups and fitness levels, this tour is an absolute highlight."

Kiwi Discovery Walk
"An experience like no other and exclusive to guests of Cape Kidnappers, this is your chance to see the rare, endangered kiwi in its own, natural habitat. Venture into the pine forests surrounding the lodge with an experienced guide as they carry out essential monitoring of kiwi chicks. Assist your guide as they check the kiwi’s radio transmitters, weigh and measure the birds to monitor their wellbeing. Proceeds from this experience go to the Cape Kidnappers’ Sanctuary to ensure the continuation of their work preserving our native species. Limited to just two groups a day of no more than six guests, this is something many New Zealanders themselves will never have the chance to experience."

Cape Kidnappers Golf Course
"For one of the most unique and spectacular golf experiences on the planet, be sure to have a game at Cape Kidnappers golf course during your stay. The course is perched 450ft. above Hawkes Bay, on chalk white cliffs that plummet down to the sea. Traverse the many finger-like tentacles of land on which the golf course is composed. The Tom Doak designed course is one of the modern marvels of golf course construction and is currently ranked 17th in the world by Golf Digest."
