It’s the last chance to hike with Eden to Addo in 2016. We will be hiking a most stunning route along the coastline in the Garden Route National Park whilst discussing corridors and cavemen. And if we are lucky, we may spot the orange breasted sunbird, a bird so sought after that people from all over the world travel here to see the endemic beauty.
Its not going to be as tough as our Great Corridor Hike but you will feel the ± 11 kilometres and 4 hours it takes. You will have to bring water, a sandwich, hat, sunscreen, walking shoes such as X trainers, a costume and small towel or kikoi, bino’s if you are a birder.
We meet at the Kranshoek picnic spot – see map attached – at 7.30.a.m. on Thursday the 29th December 2016. You will need to bring an entry fee to the park. We should be finished in time for your lunch date and afternoon sleep.
It is a fund raising hike to raise R70 000.00 for the legal aspect of declaring the Keurbooms River Corridor a Protected Environment. That’s what we need to pay a lawyer to prepare all the documents required by government to gazette and thereby declare the corridor and have it written up against the title deeds of the landowners. If you decide to donate, ( please note you are very welcome to join us without donating!) and every little bit helps, you will be supporting the free movement of leopard, bushbuck, and maybe even the Knysna elephants from the forests of the Garden of Eden to the Tsitsikamma National Park. With our exploding human population its all about protecting species habitat. The declaration of this corridor also protects the Keurbooms River, the area we have cleared of alien vegetation releasing over 850 000 cubic meters water into the river for Plettenberg Bay.Click here to join us.
