The staff were friendly, pleasant and knowledgeable. They were able to engage the children as well as the adults. The scenery was awesome and the whole tour safe and well operated. Excellent value for money.

I was very brave to book this experience, and now that it is done, very glad I did it. For an acrophobe like me (fear of heights), it was quite a challenge. They called me a tree hugger, which I really am… but I hugged my way through every point successfully with the great help of the guide. From the... More

Don't get me wrong the canopy tours were ok and learnt lots about the forest around us but I found it quite boring. Few of our group did the waterfalls canopy tour instead and I wish I had done that one instead. One regret about my holiday in South Africa!

The treetop canopy tour at Storms River is well worth a visit. I went with the friendly guides Chevage and Thaki. I am scared of heights, but they were very helpful and put a nervous client at ease. They made the experience enjoyful and fun. They even helped me to take some great photos to remember this thrilling adventure. I... More

There are about 10 slides in all,our group had 8 people,all South Africans & us. We had... More

To start with the positive news: the whole operation is run highly professional and seems to be very safe, our main guide Yolo was great and we had fun with the zip-lines. Nonetheless, be aware that the actual time zip-lining is less than an hour. Before it takes at least 15 minutes to sign the lengthy indemnity form, there is... More

This is a combination canopy tour/zip line with 10 lines to zip through at different paces. The vantage point was up to 90 ft.......maybe higher, some of the trees were ancient. I am petrified of heights, and that doesn't begin to describe my fear, but at 51 I dared to adventure and am happy I did. This was an experience... More
