    The Sundays River has its entrance at the mouth of the Indian Ocean and is tidal from the mouth for 17km.  

    The river is well known for its excellent fishing and the bird-life is prolific. See the famous Addo elephants as well as mile after mile of verdant citrus trees, bearing fruit all winter and scenting the air with their blossoms in springtime
    The Sundays River Valley Route/Addo region is only an hours' scenic drive from the wonderful beaches of the Sunshine Coast and the rich 1820 Settler history of Grahamstown. To experience the sounds and sights, Big 7(elephant, black rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, great white shark and sperm whale) and the friendliness of Africa, this area is a must for any holiday maker. 
    Addo Elephant National Park is situated 72km by road from Port Elizabeth. Established in 1931 to save 11 Elephants on the brink of extinction, and now home to more than 350 of them, 280 Cape Buffalo, black Rhino, a range of Antelope species, as well as the rare flightless dung Beetle, Addo Elephant Park is a perfect destination for the adventurous outdoor and nature lover.  Addo Elephant Park, a sanctuary for a wide range of South Africa's Wildlife, is located in the 120 000 ha of land in the thick bushveld of the Sundays River, in the Eastern Cape.  The park, the third largest in South Africa, offers a wide range of game viewing and outdoor activities, which include horse-back and horse-riding, guided walking, hiking and 4x4 trails and a picnic area for day visitors. Nothing could be better if you are a bush lover.

    About me

    I live in a stunning quaint holiday village some 50 km from Port Elizabeth, a city on the Eastern side of South Africa named Colchester.

    Wilma, my better half, and I live in a luxury home (that I built myself) situated on the banks of the Sundays River Mouth.

    We have converted our home into a Guest House as well as having a seperate AA Superior rated guest house on the riverfront property.

    I'm primary a financial advisor who has been in the Finance industry for over 40 years and trade under the name of Robin van den Berg & Associates Financial Advisors.

    Secondary to that, Wilma and I own and run 19 Guest House units, mainly in a town in central south Africa, on the banks of South Africa's largest lake, Lake Gariep.

    Although I'm well over age 60, I have no plans to retire, simply enjoying my life and all the action related to it.

    My hobbies include fishing and riding my Yamaha Jetski on the mighty Gariep Dam Lake. Lots of fun in the sun.
