Drakensberg Canopy Tour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 26, 2017

One of the best activity & you feel safe... Not Like Bungee(Sucide attempt)... One of the best experience to see the nature from such height very comfortably... Also in Canopy the safety measures are 200% & you can feel that...

Drakensberg Canopy Tour is must if you are in the area! This is good fun for all ages - perfect for young teens up to energetic grandparents.

The guides are friendly, efficient and make you feel safe. The equipment is top notch and safety is a priority. The scenery is pretty cool too - across a ravine filled with indigenous species. The trip itself includes a hanging bridge, and slides/ziplines of different lengths and speeds that go across the ravine, even to a wobbly tree platform.

It gets rather hot in summer. Wear comfortable ideally sporty type clothing and comfortable takkies to protect your feet, definitely not sandals. Check the weather beforehand - once you climbed into the harness, any jersey/sweater/long sleeve won't be easy to take off.

It is not a bad idea to use sunscreen and a bit of mozzie repellant beforehand.

The walk back out of the valley is a bit steep so an average level of fitness would certainly help

Suggestions for improvement:
- Freeze drinks beforehand or send an ice pack with the guide to keep drinks cold
- The meal served afterward is more of light snack and might not be sufficient for adults/teens with an appetite.

we were initially worried that the standard would not be professional but we found the guides, equipment and facilities to be world class. easily on a par with similar facilities we have used in Italy. thoroughly recommended.

The staff are great (with a cheeky sense of humour!) and manage to mix an eye for fun with safety as well as telling you something about the habitat and local area. Amazing to fly over the tree canopy at up to 80km/hour!
