Zipline through the forest canopy in the Hottentots Holland Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on this tour from Cape Town. Spend four hours in the company of two adventure guides, who will ensure your comfort and safety as you fly through the trees. After completing the zipline course, which includes 13 elevated platforms and a waterfall crossing via suspension bridge, refuel with an included meal at the onsite cafe.
What to Expect

Guests will arrive at base camp where they check in at our reception and then move into our briefing room to begin their safety briefing. Guests are then equipped with full body harnesses, helmets and gear for their tour.  The tour starts with a stunning 30min 4x4 drive through the Nature Reserve.  Two trained guides will accompany each group on the 4 hour tour, they will provide information about the endemic fynbos and geology of this unique World Heritage Site.  Guests will enjoy eleven thrilling slides, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs 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.   After the slides, there is 1km, relatively steep, hike back up to the 4x4 vehicles which will take guests down to base camp again.  Guests are welcomed back with a complimentary meal, which consists of a freshly baked home-made pie served with salads.

Cape Canopy Tour is suitable for almost all ages (5 –75 years is the recommended limit) and will operate in most weather conditions (rain gear will be provided).

Gotta do this again!

This was a fantastic, exhilarating must do if you go to Capetown. Only about an 1 1/2 drive from Cape Town. The staff was fabulous & the scenery was outstanding. Definitely recommend this to anyone who loves adventure!

Exhilarating, nerve-wracking but so much fun!!! We went after lunch with our young kids (11 and 8) and had the experience of a lifetime. Views of the mountain landscape were amazing. This was our first time zip-lining so naturally there was much trepidation and nervousness....More
