HONDA Safaris (SxS & QUAD only)
Maramarua Honda Red Horse Day/Night Safari
Event being planned as you read
A Unique event that starts at 4 pm with a quick drive and some driving skills exercises near the camp. Also a chance to tackle Everest and maybe even K2 depending on the weather.
Then its back to the HQ for a BBQ dinner and we are off to the three forest blocks and two farms for a night tour. This was really exciting last year. Whilst it is a little slower than a day tour it is heaps of fun. You will need a light bar to see where you are going plus all the normal gear as below. It is amazing how different the forestg is in the dark.
When we get back we can have some soup and refreshments. BYO refreshments.
Pre registrations only - NO DAY ENTRIES
Limited to 35 vehicles so be in quick as we turned vehicles away last event.
