“The best adrenalin rush ever!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

You have to do this regardless of your age. Book in advance. My family comprised of 2 adults and 3 kids: 17, 14 & 9. Had a rather brief briefing, kitted out with full gear (gloves and helmet as well) taken on a truck to the start of the forest. I'm not mad on heights from the very beginning we all felt completely safe. The guides that accompany you are extremely capable men. Safety is paramount but also keen for you to have the best time. Tick box for both! 10 zip wires of varying length and speed. Scream as loud as you can - I did and loved every minute. A definite highlight of our South Africa trip.

“Amazing fun”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We did the canopy tour in February 2014. The initial welcome was super and the guide tried to answer all my wildlife questions. The place was a bit spartan but the equipment good. Safety was a strong feature and prevailed throughout. Unfortunately when we began our tour it began to rain heavily and so there was a lack of wildlife. Despite this our guide was great and if anything it made the wires faster and more exciting. It is a great activity for all ages, but you need some agility.

“Not worth it..”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We went there as a group of young people, expecting a lot because of the great reviews on trip advisor. But the overall experience wasn't by far as thrilling or beautiful as we had expected. It's more something for families with children or older people. But if you're with a group of students doing the Garden Route, I would recommend skipping this activity and just go hiking in the national park, or do the bungee!

“Excellence”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

My first visit to Canopy Tours and certainly wont be the last. What an awesome experience. Staff, service and tour guide professionalism are way beyond my expectations. Tour guide Emo and Robie are a true asset to your organisation. Knowledge and professionalism at a level which exceed anyones expectations.

“Great way to try something exciting & see some Tsitsikamma National Park!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We had a great time on our Canopy Tour. Our guide was very helpful explaining how to use the zip line safely and pointing out interesting facts about the Tsitsikamma. There are 10 lines used, each time you stop on a tree top platform that has some interesting facts about the forest. The tour goes for around 2 hours and includes a toasted sandwich and drink afterwards. Would definitely recommend.
