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!
