Criscross Adventures and Chrislin African Lodge

Eight years on with CBD … 

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, I was the guest of the Pickels Family of Addo – Chris and Terri and David. Thanks to you all (and to David Fitzhenry and Chn) for a wonderful treat.

Accommodation was at their Chrislin African Lodge ( and Crisscross Adventures ( kept me busy canoeing down the Sundays River and quadbiking throught the citrus orchards of the Sundays River Valley.

Monday evening, a windstill end to Spring Day 2014, saw us braaing at Chris and Terri’s quaint farm home. A fitting African end to the most unbelievable Addo hospitality!

It was a great recharge for my batteries – nature at its best: tranquility and paradise!

Just three quarters of an hour outside Port Elizabeth, this is definitely a place to relax and also to use as a stepping stone to Addo Elephant Park.

Every picture tells a story – so rather than write more which is becoming difficult for me now, I invite you to look at the pics:
