Join us on an epic adventure in South Africa. With Cathkin Peak in the background and lush vegetation all around, the Central Drakensberg forest is the perfect setting for your ziplining.

We take your safety really seriously. So, we won’t go anywhere before first giving you a safety briefing and fitting you up with all the necessary equipment.

When we’re ready, we’ll take a quick trip to the start of our tour. Then, it’s go-time. We’ll zip from platform to platform, sometimes on cliff faces and sometimes treetop platforms, using steel cables. We’ll take in awesome views of the beautiful forest and mountains as we go.

Your guide will be on hand to ensure that you’re safe and happy throughout. They’ll also be able to point out places of interest and to share cool facts and history about the landscape around you.

We’ll spend around three hours up in the canopy and then it’ll be time to head back to reception where we’ll all enjoy a meal together. Please keep in mind that you are welcome to join this program with children as young as 6 years old, and if you are older, you are also invited to join us as long as you are younger than 90.  However, do keep in mind that there is a short steep walk of 600m, so you will need a good fitness level.

This is a seriously fun trip and is not to be missed, book now to secure your spot.

Once you get a taste for zip lining we’re sure you’ll want more. Be sure to also check out our Cape Canopy Tour, close to Cape Town.

About the guide

Based in Drakensberg, Canopy Tours South Africa has the safety of its guests as its number 1 priority. Every one of our Canopy Tours has been designed and built by a civil engineer and all of our guides undergo a rigorous training program and are assessed in every aspect of safe operations before being able to start guiding.

We believe in sustainable tourism and, apart from putting a strong focus on conservation, we only select and train guides from the areas where we operate.

With a maximum of 9 people per group, we can promise a personal and authentic experience during which we will help you push your boundaries. Three guides will accompany your tour and will show you that YOU CAN DO THIS!

We love what we do and are excited to show you this beautiful area. Come join us!
