About us: 

GRAEME ADDISON 

Graeme is the man who started professional river rafting in South Africa, but is also is a well known author of books, a working journalist, and a former Professor of Communication. At the Vaal Cybercentre he runs Editorial Assignments, a publishing house specialising in websites and books on popular science and technology. His passion is astronomy and the story of asteroids. Meanwhile he keeps his adventure edge, being a keen mountain biker, kayaker and, of course, raftmaster. Graeme trains outdoor guides under Adventure Standards Africa.

KAREN ADDISON

A former teacher of the deaf and primary school teacher, Karen supervises all facilities and handles all bookings. Once a top SA woman paddler, she remains active as an adventure runner, knocking off challenges like the 260km, five-day run from Hermanus to Paarl over the mountains. Karen is a kayaker and mountain biker. She loves kids and will be happy to show you around the trails and islands in the river. Karen has turned Otters’ Haunt from a run-down holiday cottage into a successful guest house and bush camp business.

OTTERS’ HAUNT

We bought this property in the year 2000 after it had been extensively damaged by the huge flood of 1996. The garden was a marshland and the guest house was collapsing and smelly. We named it Otters’ Den after the animals that swim in the river. We renovated, tidied up, and made the property as floodproof as possible – for example, tiling all the floors. The flood of 2011 did virtually no harm. We put everything on bricks.

FAMILY HOLIDAYS

THE IDEAL family getaway close to Johannesburg. Look no further than our beautiful Otters' Den guest house at the riverside. Or maybe choose the Full Moon Bush Cabins for your group exclusively.

Graeme and Karen are great companions as you drive, walk, or mountain bike the trails. Or paddle on the Vaal, River of the Crater!
