HONDA Safaris (SxS & QUAD only)
ANNUAL PORT WAIKATO SAFARI SAT 6th JAN 2018
After the slippery but extremely fun hill climb in the wet wet terrain last year, the farmer has asked us to move to drier weather as we can make too much damage to his grass land and tracks. Plus we will have much more fun if we don't have to push, winch and cut our way through the pine plantations.
Plus of course we want to view the fantastic coast line in pristine weather conditions so Saturday January the 6th is the date now chosen.
All the usual Tour requirements AS BELOW

ABOUT THE HONDA SAFARIS
A HONDA Safari is a Quad and Side X Side only Tour over Farmland, Forest and more. They are follow the leader events and travel at the speed of the slowest driver. It is not a race but a tour to check out the surrounding fauna and flora. We usually get to see some great sites and the bottoms of some great bogs plus everything in between.
