Cape Canopy Ziplining Tour

Escape the city for a day with a thrilling and enriching tour like no other. Just an hour from Cape town is CapeNature’s Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, home to the exciting Cape Canopy Tour, voted 2nd best new activity in the world by Lonely Planet for 2015.

Head out here to Elgin Valley and zipline with professional, expert guides through the mountains. The journey consists of eleven thrilling ziplines, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs and fynbos covered mountain slopes above the Riviersonderend Gorge. A unique suspension bridge between a narrow sandstone ravine high above a spectacular double waterfall is guaranteed to be one of the unforgettable highlights of the tour.

This is a fully guided nature experience with a strong emphasis on client comfort and safety. Two trained guides will accompany each group on the 4-5 hour tour. They will provide information about the endemic fynbos and geology of this unique World Heritage Site.

    "I waited two years for this adventure, and it was worth all the waiting. Big ups to our guides Charlton and DC. Charlton kept us laughing all the way, a very experienced guide indeed!"

    "What an amazing fun day. The guides were professional with safety coming first and lots of fun in between. Thembalini was the quiet one but had us in stitches with his showmanship and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. On... the first run I had to make use of his ""Mountain route towing"" service and I was greeted with a huge grin and he checked I was ok, he hooked me up and towed me in. The leader, Hope, was brilliant. From giving us a run down on all the do's and don'ts to taking our chirps and giving them straight back without ever over stepping the line. He knew his plant life and served us juice and biscuits in their ""open air restaurant"" which was a pleasant surprise. The zip lining was great fun, the scenery amazing and something I would definitely recommend to everyone and I will do it again. A truly amazing day. Thank you guys, 10/10!" Read full review

    "Wow, what an amazing experience. Our two expert guides were X and Elroy and they were fantastic starting from the briefing, kitting up and guiding us through the amazing mountain route. They were constantly reminding us to have fun whilst ...always keeping us and reminding us to be safe. Thank you to you both for making our experience so fabulous. We will be seeing you again that's for sure. To all those behind the scenes, you make up a brilliant team from booking, safety briefing, ziplining, 4x4 drive to lunch. Well done. You rock !"
