From sandboarding down one of South Africa's tallest dunes; sailing or canoeing along the picturesque Sundays River; or enjoying a plunge in the river during one of the water-sport activities.

Nukakamma Canoe Trail:
Experience the tranquil beauty of the Sundays River and its rich natural features on the "Nukakamma Canoe Outdoor Trails Expedition." It is South Africa’s only canoe trail to have been awarded Green Flag Status.

Because of its green, grassy banks, the Khoisan dubbed the river "Nukakamma" (grassy water). This self-guided walk is one not easily forgotten. On your explorations, keep a watch out for kudu, bushbuck, porcupines, Cape otters, monkeys, and over 200 bird species.

You'll paddle 13 kilometres to the overnight accommodation, which is set directly on the river bank.

Your luggage, food, and camping supplies are brought to and from the Addo Accommodation Cabin by vehicle. All you will need is a daypack. With no neighbours but nature, you can walk, swim, paddle, fish, and end the day with a braai (barbeque) and a spectacular sunset from the deck.

After a tranquil night in the wilderness, you will paddle 13 kilometres back to the Sundays River Adventures headquarters.

The cottage is incredibly basic and has no power, so bring everything you need—camping style. Bedding is provided, but please bring anything else you would need for camping, such as sunscreen, warm clothing, food, drinks, cooler boxes, and insect repellent.

Rack Rate: R 350 per person

Sunset Beach Safari:
Sunset Beach Safaris allows guests the opportunity to explore the splendour of the Sundays River Mouth. The open safari vehicle tour includes a visit to Pearson Park Lodge, a private resort that leads to the Sundays River Mouth.

The tour guide, who will be driving the open safari vehicle, will provide more information on any animals or birds spotted along the trip and facts about the resort's history.
