“Wow!!”

Drakensberg Canopy Tour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2017

Awesome activity! Guides Nhlaka and Vusi were knowledgeable, informative and gave us a sense of fun.
For someone with a fear of heights, they made me feel OK with our surroundings - even at over 65m from the river below.
Tough walk out on a hot summers day, but well worth it!

We went on a fairly overcast day and it seemed like our guides, Kwazi and Comcam would rather have been anywhere else than doing the tour with us. We were not given a single fact about the area and information about the ziplines we're rushed and mumbled. The ziplining itself was great, but about halfway we just felt like we had to finish up, which spoilt the experience. Boo!

This was the second time that I've done a canopy tour, and it did not disappoint. The views of the forests are spectacular.
You can see that safety is a big concern, and we were attached on three different hooks and two different lines an all the lines .Our guides were not only safe, but also fun and knowledgeable about the area.
Be prepared for a 500m stair route down toward the zip line, and then back up again afterwards. You might break a sweat if you are not fit, but it is definitely doable.

A great experience all around and a wonderful adventure.

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.
