There’s no better adventure activity than zipping between elevated platforms high up in a beautiful forest. So, come along with us on a trip to remember in the Karkloof Forest Reserve.

Located in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, this forest is full of beautiful plant life that is native to the region. The Karkloof Canopy Tour, where we’ll be, is made up of 12 platforms and 10 zip-line slides. The longest slide is an epic 200 meters!

Your trip will last around two hours and it’ll start with getting you fitted with all the equipment you need. We’ll also do a thorough safety briefing. We make this a priority.

From there we’ll head to the canopy. Our guides are super knowledgable, so you’ll be able to learn a lot about the ecology of the area. One of the awesome things about this forest is the birdlife. Your guide will point out all the different kinds of birds to you as you go along.

When we’re done on the zip line, we’ll head back to our base and enjoy lunch together.

This trip gives you the perfect dose of adrenaline. Plus, it’s suitable for people aged 6 to 90, making it the perfect family activity. Book now and we’ll be waiting for you in the forest!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
