The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is a unique adventure that takes place high up in the magnificent Tsitsikamma forest. The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traveling from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters above the forest floor
The tour begins with a detailed safety briefing followed by a ‘kitting up’ session where full body harness, pulleys and climbing equipment is issued and checked. Although really high up, we all felt completely safe as the guides handled the equipment so professionally. We were at all times clipped on to at least one safety cable but usually two
The guides were very professional, knowledgeable and although focused on safety fun was definitely had by all.
Gliding from tree to tree like Tarzan, looking down from the amazingly high and old indigenous trees onto the forest floor was an experience of a life time. The instructors had excellent knowledge about the fauna & flora and provided interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2½ to 3 hours. We spotted a Knysna Loerie and managed to admire his beautiful colours before he went hopping through the branches monkey-like.
The Tsitsikamma canapy tour was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to everyone.
A nice touch was that after the experience while we were eating our meal, we could watch on the TV screens footage of us on the zipline
