The most thrilling experience! Would highly recommend if your in the Drakensberg area. My husband and I have done a few in South Africa and some overseas. This one however has to be our most favourite one yet! The staff who guided us were so informative and fun! We truly enjoyed ourselves and the views were amazing. Side note: the hike back up the mountain after the zip line tour is strenuous so be prepared and wear good shoes!

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.

One of the best zip lines we've done so far. Location amongst the trees cannot have better views. Safety was good!
