Blue Bird Outride 2020-01-18

A Saturday summer outride has been planned on Blue Bird to visit and explore the farm. The outride will include some of our inviting hunt jumps, as well as tracks through indigenous bush sprinkled with game.

Blue Bird Farm, recently purchased by the Inanda Club, is only 60kms from Inanda Country Base. Nestled in the Hekpoort valley alongside the Magalies River, the farm boasts spectacular scenery, the Magaliesberg mountains making a breathtaking backdrop to its mix of grasslands and indigenous bush.

An off road route for 4x4 vehicles will also be arranged, with everyone meeting up at a halfway point.

Trucking will be arranged, loading at Inanda Country Base at 7.45am to leave at 8.00am.
The ride is planned to start at 10.00am.
The ride will be followed by a "burger bar" lunch served next to the pool.

To book - email Margie Marshall
