Owner description: A Canopy Tour® takes you on an unforgettable adventure as you slide from one platform to the next along a series of steel cables set amongst magnificent natural surroundings. It is widely regarded as one of the best eco-adventure activities in the world and is something for people of all ages with the youngest being 3 and the oldest 90 so far to do the tour. The concept of Canopy Tour originated in the rain forests of Costa Rica, where scientists were studying animals and birds in the Canopy Layer of the Forest. Safely sliding from tree to tree to a series of platforms became a novel way to see the flora and fauna of an indigenous forest. A whole new level of appreciation was born when the concept became one of South Africa’s most popular eco adventure activities. Karkloof canopy tour is only 1:30 from Durban, near Howick in the Midlands, this is a must do activity especially for nature lovers or adventure seekers looking to do something truly unique. Professional guides assure the safety of each group and point out interesting facts along the way. It’s ideal for team building, kid’s parties, family get-togethers, corporate events or just a fun day out. Open every day, with tours every half an hour from 8am to 3pm. Come experience one of South Africa’s fastest growing eco-adventures with thousands of satisfied thrill-seekers having already caught the bug.

What an amazing feeling!! This is a must go for all adrenaline junkies who like to jump on high places. It provides a perfect and safe experience that kids and 90 year olds can safely enjoy. First you are given a brief and then the guides make sure they bind you into the safest harness and walk you step by step along the 12 zip lines.
There are short one and long zip lines and the view is breathtaking. The experience in the treetops was literally like nothing on earth. I'd definitely recommend it and will definitely go back. Well worth it!

This tour has the most beautiful natural bush and scenery. The staff are professional and make your experience fun. I don't like heights but managed this as you feel safe. Greta for people who like an adrenaline rush and speed. Birds, flora and Fauna were also magic.
