“Good fun”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Not the most fearful adrenalin rush you will have unless you are REALLY scared of heights.
Good fun esp for the young kids. Very professional and safe all the way. Bit pricy but worth the experience.

“Amazing adrenalin rush with excellent safety procedures”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

On a Garden Route educational tour in preparation for inbound UK school tours. Stopped at Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours at Storms River Village. After a slightly disorganised safety briefing we were given our equipment (including helmet, harness, gloves) to tackle the 8 zip lines from 10 platforms. Heights up to 30 metres and 90 metres long. Groups of approximately 6 - 8 pax with 2 guides + a video-man Taken by van to the site. Excellent safety procedures with 2 back-up safety wires attached to the main system at all times. Guides were amazing and entertaining at all times but also very professional with regard to our safety at all times. The adrenalin rush was amazing with good speeds at variable heights through the Forest. Long climb back uphill out of the Forest to the support vans to return you to the restaurant for hot drinks + toasted price. Not the cheapest excursion but worth the money

“Just lie back and think of England!”
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.

“The best adrenalin rush ever!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

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.

“Amazing fun”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

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.
