Garden Route National Park: Tsitsikamma Zipline Canopy Tour

1. Garden Route National Park: Tsitsikamma Zipline Canopy Tour

This is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. Most of the platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2.5 to 3 hours. The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rainforest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment. 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. A short drive into the Tsitsikamma forest and it is time to monkey around. From the start on the launch platform, a new world unfolds as one gently glides on a steel cable to the first tree platform. All groups are escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a follow guide to ensure your safety as you slide from tree to tree. The platforms are built high up in the giant Outeniqua Yellowwoods and provide an unbelievable view of this enchanting new world, any fear of heights is soon lost as you gather in your new surroundings.

Worth EVERY penny! The three days were a wonderful experience for me with great adventures in a beautiful environment! Especially the small tour group (we were only three) and the great tour guide - Isaac. Thank you for the great discoveries during the trip. We ate wonderfully, saw beautiful animals and had a lot of fun!

A super tour that contains many beautiful activities and sights. A lot of driving, but with a nice group this is no problem. A really nice experience if there is little time.

Super amazing activity to do. The rush is worth it. The guides that assist you are friendly and funny making it even more worth the while.

Super. I enjoyed myself. The instructors where friendly.

It was absolutely incredible. Fun for the whole family
