What makes Crisscross Adventures different?
Crisscross Adventures was formally started by Christopher Pickels in 2004. For Chris, the concept behind the business really started as a young boy when he would seek adventure and explore the Sunday’s River and Addo Area. Being the 3rd generation in his family to grow up in this magnificent environment he learned the secret spots to explore, he got off the beaten track and learned the truly special characteristics of the area. The business is ultimately an extension of his passion. That passion has been passed onto his wife Terri (business partner), their great staff, and all who join their tours. All Crisscross Adventure guides are qualified and experienced field guides with FGASA qualifications, are legally registered with the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, first aid trained, and have written and passed the Addo Elephant National Park Exams.
