SAFARI DRIVE OPEN DAY 2017
After the success of our March 2016 Open Day (see video here) we are planning our third Open Day in 2017 and to help us gauge interest and plan a perfect day please contact us at: email@example.com to let us know if you would like to come as we are limited on numbers. Nearer the day we will send you an invitation and directions to the Sheepdrove Eco Conference center. If you are thinking of a family safari, we would also love your children to come too.
A full day of Safari Drive activities and talks are planned including driving Land Rover Defenders on a 4x4 course around the Organic Farm with B.O.R.D.A off road instructors. Enjoy campfire cooking demonstrations, with Katherine Marland of Kather’s Kitchen. Katherine worked for Safari Drive before leaving to set up her own catering and cookery school. Listen to a talk about self drive safaris from Charles Norwood MD of Safari Drive and take part in a Q&A sessions with our Safari Drive experts, plus spend time with them on a one to one basis.
