While on his stay in Addo, he joined us for our Addo River Safari, and very kindly had the following to say about his experience:
As per usual I had assumed that Addo and the surrounding areas were all about the national park, I assumed incorrectly, Daniel connected me with Chris and Terri of Crisscross Adventures, who kindly offered me a canoe trip down the Sundays River, I jumped at the opportunity. The river came alive with Chris’s sharp eye and local knowledge which resulted in numerous fantastic bird sightings, most notably a half collared King Fisher , a Goliath Heron and a number of lizards which I never would have spotted. I highly recommend this day trip, it’s a nice change from the usual and if you are into bird life you can’t really afford to miss it. CrissCross Adventures also offer Safari Tours to the Addo National Park and the local knowledge that Chris and Terri offer, shed light on more than just the birds and wildlife but a truly beautiful area rich with history.
