Destination Garden Route event: Knysna - Addo Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike

Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike


The Eden to Addo Great Corridor Hike is an expedition for and about conservation. All money raised contributes to building essential conservation corridors stretching from Knysna to Addo and linking the three mega reserves of the area: The Garden Route National Park, the Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site and Addo Elephant National Park. These linkages are vital for preserving biodiversity in times of climate change. On the hike you walk through portions of all these reserves and through private areas where only Eden to Addo is allowed access.

You will experience 5 of South Africa’s 7 biomes and probably some of the wildest areas in South Africa. The Eden to Addo Corridor is certainly the most bio-diverse corridor on the planet with fynbos, forest, thicket, succulent karoo and nama karoo biomes. Just one of the biomes, fynbos, consists of 9000 species of which 6192 are found nowhere else. Nowhereelse on earth will you be able to experience such diversity of terrain and species on hike.

You will be part of a small, exclusive group of hikers that makes its way to Addo. There is no organised trail to follow. You will not come across other hikers or chalets.  It can be very tough at times as we bundu bash through the Fynbos and follow animal paths. You will walk through areas where the last truly free elephants, black rhino and buffalo still roam without fences to hamper their movement. You will follow the spoor of leopard, bush buck and red hartebeest. And as you walk your donation is contributing to increasing their range by establishing conservation corridors between the parks.

The event is finished.
