A Four wheel drive event that celebrates the diverse climate of the central plateau in true winter style. Saturday and Sunday are guided Safari days where we explore the features and some of the history of the 163,000 acres of the Waiouru military Training area. This Safari is deliberately placed in mid winter to give you a chance to drive in real winter conditions. It is also placed at a time when there are few other events or distractions.
