The trail is about 400km and starts in the Garden of Eden, Knysna. The trail crosses the Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site and the Tsitsikamma National Park and ends in the Addo Elephant National Park. This specific route copies a 200 years old elephant path, when their migration hadn’t come across human settlements yet. Those areas are linked by the Eden to Addo Corridors and ensures the development of local biodiversity. The hike takes you to walk through multiple biomes such as forest, fynbos, succulent karoo, nama karoo and thicket.
The Great Corridor Hike is limited to 20 nature lovers, hiking enthusiasts. Each year the hike’s length may vary: depending on the group, its capacities and expectations, the total hike can go from 400 to 450 kilometres. The average age of our hikers is 55, but our all-time senior was 70! There is no organised trail to follow: you will walk within pure wilderness. The guides will make sure you don’t miss out any piece of information during the hike about surrounding nature. Our logistics will take care of accommodation so that you won’t have anything to do but eat a delicious meal and take off your boots.
Other than its path, this hike is made exceptional by its character: Eden to Addo is a NGO working on biodiversity protection; therefore you will not be just part of a random hike. The conservancy work that we do partly relies on our hikes income; therefore your adventure will directly serve the nature you walk through.
