The ETA Story

Offering exhilarating and unique adventure experiences for all.

What started out as just another adventure bike trip to Hogsback, led to long conversations at the historic Hogsback Inn between Chris and the hotel’s owner, Mark, about all their past adventures and what they plan on conquering in the future. This was the last bit of motivation that Chris needed to give birth to something that he has wanted to do for many years. They immediately saw great potential for adventure experiences in the Eastern Cape area, and over a few weeks of planning, drawing up contracts and exploring the surrounding areas of Hogsback, ETA was born. As the big dreamer and go-getter that Chris is, this was only the start. His vision is to explore the whole of South Africa and take you on breathtaking adventures to the most beautiful destinations or routes that you can only dream of, making that dream a reality.

At ETA we don’t settle for anything less than perfection and as the owner and founder of Big O Sports and Big O Event Management, sister companies to ETA, Chris has an extensive background in event management and knows exactly what it takes to create an exceptional experience that will stay in your memory for years to come.

Big O Event Management was founded in 2014 as an events management company that specialises in organising trail running events, to ensure that people could attend well-organised events and have fun at the same time, which was lacking at the time. The company has since branched out to organise mountain bike events, triathlons, biathlons, development projects, water sports, corporate functions, year-end functions, birthday parties, event hire and everything in between and has organised over 100 events over the past few years.
