River Rat early next year

 Earlier this year we had a very popular outing to Stanford to bird watch on the river. We have decided to do it again next year. There will be a morning cruise and an afternoon cruise, both on Wednesday 28 Januaryand here are the details – we will cruise on the River Rat. 

Cruise 1 – Depart Stanford on the River Rat at 07h00 for 2/3 hours good birding. Bring along your tea and coffee and croissants and enjoy time with skipper Ernie Blommaert. We are limiting each “sailing “ to 12 places so that everyone is comfortable on the boat and getting around and ensuring all get a fair chance. Early morning birding is always rewarding so this should be loads of fun.

Cruise 2 – Depart Stanford at 17h00 for 2/3 hours on the River Rat. Bring along your wine and supper and enjoy thecruise. We can arrange a braai on board – please advise if you wish to braai – otherwise a nice cold meal on the river with a glass or two of wine will be great. Birding is rewarding along the river at this time of day so we should have a good outing.

The price for either cruise is R110 per head – when confirming I will advise when payment is due.

 If the response is as good as this year I will book the following day for an extra cruise or two.

First come first served!!
