CANOPY TOURS AND ZIPLINING IN SOUTH AFRICA


Ziplining or canopy tours offer a fun and alternative view of the forest.

Tree top ziplines were originally designed for biologists in Costa Rica to study the fauna and flora of the high forest canopies. Quickly they realised that this was an exciting and educational adventure that could be offered to the public.

In South Africa, tours consist of about ten platforms connected by ziplines high above virgin forests and gorges. The adventure begins with a safety briefing and a demonstration by your guides. Thereafter, you will be kitted up with a harness and safety helmet. You will then be transported into the forest or up to the mountain to the start of the canopy tour. Tandem slides with your guide are also possible.

Several places offer Canopy tours in South Africa

The Tsitsikamma Forest at Storms River consists of 10 platforms and 10 slides, the longest of which is 100m.

Karkloof, in the KawZulu Natal Midlands consists of eight slides, the longest of which is 170m. The focus is on the plants and birds of the forest with a waterfall and stream as an added bonus.

The Magaliesburg, about 90 minutes from Johannesburg / Pretoria is set against spectacular cliffs above the trees.

The longest aerial canopy tour is found in Mpumalanga with 10 platforms linking a 1.2 km trail. Sections vary from 70m t0 230 m.
