Overview

Get a new perspective on South Africa with a zipline canopy tour within the Garden Route's Tsitsikamma forest. Glide from platform to platform through the foliage of giant trees and learn interesting facts about the area's heart pears, giant yellow woods and tree ferns as you go. This 2.5-3 hour canopy adventure is suitable for all age levels and also includes a light lunch.

What to Expect
The only fully, 10 platform, tree based canopy tour in Africa. See the giant trees with branches draped in grandfather's beard 30m above the canopy floor.

The experience begins with a safety briefing at the office, during which you will also be kitted out with a sliding harness, safety helmet, sliding glove and pulley.

After the briefing you will be transported approximately 1 km to the starting point of the pristine indigenous forest. This is where your unforgettable adventure begins.

During the tour your guides will keep you entertained and informed with interesting facts about the spectacular Tsitsikamma Indigenous forest. You will encounter Hard Pear trees, Giant Yellow Woods and other interesting Forest Flora. Stand next to a giant Outeniqua Yellow wood and feel like a dwarf against this unique creation. You will encounter beautiful Tree Ferns hundreds of years old.

Safety is paramount and the system has been built to high civil engineering standards. Guides are fully trained.

Tours depart at 30min intervals, 7 days per week, and are restricted to a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 persons per tour. Big groups will be split in 15min intervals.

The tour takes about 2½ – 3 hours including a safety briefing, kit-up, transport and light meal afterwards. Anyone between the ages of 7 to 70 can go on a tour, although we have made exceptions depending on the fitness of older people and whether or not the harness fits properly on a younger child.
A lunch is included in the price and is served after the tour. This can be served before the tour if you arrive at least 1 hour before activity departure.

Great fun

We had a wonderful experience, and had full confidence in the staff who took us round -- Winsley, Crystallina and Tino. I thought perhaps we might have received more information about the forest itself, but this is more an "adventure" than an "information" tour; that's...More
