Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike all about conservation
The Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike 2018 is all about conservation. Hike with an exclusive group from the 1st to 22nd of September 2018.
I’m sure you have heard of the fund raising 350+km Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike that occurs every year in September? But if you haven’t or if you are thinking of entering, please read on.
This hike is unique. Its probably the longest continuous slack packing hike in South Africa. The 20 days spent walking in nature allows for a sustained awareness of the interrelatedness between you and the rest of nature. Nowhere else can you walk through such bountiful variety that nature has to offer from forest, to fynbos, to succulant karoo, to nama karoo and ending in thicket. Imagine the lush forest with tree ferns where South Africa’s last truly free elephants still roam and then the desert like karoo with its wide open spaces.
It’s unique because there are no fences holding the mountain zebra, buffalo black rhino and all wild life caged in. And while you walk you are contributing to Eden to Addo’s conservation work, establishing corridors allowing for free movement of all species between the three parks we traverse. And only Eden to Addo has access to the privately owned land and corridors connecting the parks.
