We have unfortunately had to put a temporary halt on our guided Addo River Safari which is located in the town of Addo on the Sundays River. Due to unfortunate circumstances, this section of river has become very clogged up, and impassable. We have also been experiencing a terrible drought in the area which has added to the River water level being too low to navigate our Canoe Safari’s. As soon as Crisscross Adventures is able to re-open up this section of the river, and our water level is higher, we will resume our much loved activity here!

The popular Addo River Safari  offers guests the best bird watching experience in the Eastern Cape, where one can find countless water birds, 7 different species of Kingfisher and the chance of sighting the magnificent Fish Eagle.
