In July 2020, I will be attempting to run the twenty day, 370km hiking trail from Addo Elephant National Park to the Diepwalle Forest in Knysna in under four and a half days.
This will involve crossing seven mountain ranges, numerous river crossing and passing through five different biological communities.
I am doing this to raise awareness and funds for the Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative.
The Eden to Addo vision is to link three mega-reserves, the Garden Route National Park, The Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site and the Addo Elephant National Park by means of natural corridors to protect and restore the integrity of bio-diversity and eco-system functioning.
Your support as I take on this massive challenge will be very much appreciated!

Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative
THE DREAM: The Eden to Addo vision is based on the practical potential within the landscape connecting the Western and Eastern Cape of South Africa. But this vision is guided by a deeper question and dream: What if we could re-establish ancient elephant migration paths across the Cape, what then? What other wildlife will benefit and how would that restore the ecological balance of the region?
