A SKEPPIES Project

Pofadder Extreme Adventures manages and markets a 5-day hiking trail along the Orange River, departing from Onseepkans on the border with Namibia. The trail is affected by flooding, which damages the trail itself and pollutes the only water supply along the route. This small fresh water spring is also threatened by alien invasive plant species.

CAP, CSA, and CitiGroup supplied the projects with tools to maintain the path and keep the spring clear of invasive plants. These tools included two long-handled loppers, two folding hand-saws, one bow saw and several spare blades and were handed over in March 2011.
