Owner description: The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters above the forest floor
Reviewed 1 May 2014

On a tour of South Africa and booked as a party to do the canopy tour.

If you have enjoyed Go Ape! or Treerunners then this will be for you. But it's definitely plus plus on the UK versions. Up to 30 metres high and 90m long, the 10+ zip wires will give you a thrill as you see the forest canopy move past pretty quickly!

The guides are engaged, thoughtful, calming and funny. A lot was learned about the forest fauna and flora. The trees in particular are magnificent.

If I have any gripes its that the pre-tour briefing was slow, and the size of our group meant that the trip was dis-jointed.

But, for a family on a Garden Route trip, this makes a good focus for a planned stopover.

You have to do this regardless of your age. Book in advance. My family comprised of 2 adults and 3 kids: 17, 14 & 9. Had a rather brief briefing, kitted out with full gear (gloves and helmet as well) taken on a truck to the start of the forest. I'm not mad on heights from the very beginning we all felt completely safe. The guides that accompany you are extremely capable men. Safety is paramount but also keen for you to have the best time. Tick box for both! 10 zip wires of varying length and speed. Scream as loud as you can - I did and loved every minute. A definite highlight of our South Africa trip.

We did the canopy tour in February 2014. The initial welcome was super and the guide tried to answer all my wildlife questions. The place was a bit spartan but the equipment good. Safety was a strong feature and prevailed throughout. Unfortunately when we began our tour it began to rain heavily and so there was a lack of wildlife. Despite this our guide was great and if anything it made the wires faster and more exciting. It is a great activity for all ages, but you need some agility.

We went there as a group of young people, expecting a lot because of the great reviews on trip advisor. But the overall experience wasn't by far as thrilling or beautiful as we had expected. It's more something for families with children or older people. But if you're with a group of students doing the Garden Route, I would recommend skipping this activity and just go hiking in the national park, or do the bungee!

My first visit to Canopy Tours and certainly wont be the last. What an awesome experience. Staff, service and tour guide professionalism are way beyond my expectations. Tour guide Emo and Robie are a true asset to your organisation. Knowledge and professionalism at a level which exceed anyones expectations.
