Great canopy zip-lining experience in the central Drakensberg area!
The tour was priced at about 600 Zar/person and we were not sure whether it would be worth the money, but yes it was!
Very friendly staff, very careful when it comes to safety and properly gearing you up.
There are 12 slides overall, some longer (up to 180m), some shorter, some faster others a bit slower. Very nice experience also because of the guides keeping you safe and explaining stuff around the forrest you zip through.

Really exhilarating and fun ! Even for oldies like us . 65 m above the forest floor in a beautiful setting in the mid Drakensberg area .
The two young guys were both very safety conscious and funny and engaging at all times .
A good morning out well worth it !

What a fantastic experience, zip-lining from platform to platform high above the ground. the safety staff were knowledgeable and caring at all times and the thrill of flying left me speechless. I will be back each time i visit the Drakensberg.

Wow is all I can say. 12 Ziplines over the most amazing view and sounds of a flowing river below. This was a magical experience I will forever experience. I appreciated the experienced guides who were so polite and understanding as this was my first time ziplining experience. I would certainly do this over and over again.

We had been on this particular canopy tour twice before and since we had an exchange student from Australia with us, it was a no-brainier to book again. It was due to be a group of 7 youngsters, aged 14-20. 4 of them had done this tour before. In the past we were always told that it was 2 guides to a max group size of 8. This morning, one of the youngsters fell ill, so 6 of them set off. To their horror, they added another family of 5 to their group. The guides had no time to explain about the fauna and flora as they had in the past and the tour took more than 4 hours. I was deeply disappointed that the exchange student came back without experiencing what we had in the past.

The canopy tour was 12 ziplines of various speeds and lengths through the forest. It was great. The two guides were very professional and the whole tour was extremely safe. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the hike back to the vehicle, but it was a necessary evil. I fully recommend this activity to people visiting Cathkin Park who want a little more adventure than just hiking.

Hi! Thanks for your feedback. Yes the walk is a little strenuous, but the beauty of the forest makes up for it. :) We do hope to see you again when you're next in the Central Drakensberg, alternatively visit our sister company Karkloof Canopy Tour in Howick.

After arriving we were quickly assisted with our booking and to the safety briefing. It was clear that the staff was well trained on a working system. However we had a minor incident and could have been handled differently. Their safety procedures were top notch and we never felt unsafely. Its was the second time we did it and will definitely do it again!

Arrived at the office unbooked and they immediately helped my 9 yr old girl and I to gear up. The 10min ride up the mountain was a bit bumpy then enjoyed hiking into the indigenous forest to start the zipline. 2 guides accompanied us and you are strapped
safely at 3 different points. The sandwich and coffee back at their office
was a pleasant surprise !

Anyone can do this!
We felt well looked after and we were given a very informative brief before the trip.
Most importantly we felt safe. The equipment was in good condition and hygiene was stressed and considered.
It was exhilarating experience which you need on your bucket list.
We were treated with the most delicious chicken mayonnaise roll at the end.

Drakensberg Canopy Tour was wonderful! The guides were super professional, friendly, and fun! The canopy ziplines themselves were a blast (you can go really fast and across pretty long lines) and we saw a lot of great scenery. Would definitely recommend this for anyone in the area!
