Canopy Touring in South Africa

The concept of canopy touring developed in South America from a need by scientists to study natural forests from a different perspective. It has quickly been modified into a fantastic sport that most people can participate in. At the same time it's environmentally friendly and educational.

Canopy Touring is also an ideal team building activity ideal for smaller groups of like minded people.


Grahamstown - Zipline At Frasers Camp

Zipline Credits: Frasers Camp Adventures

According to Frasers Camp Adventures zip lining is the zippiest outdoor adventure since the great trek.

A zipline is a steel cable strung across a ravine together with a safety cable as back-up.

You get into a harness, leap over the edge and scream (literally) as you race across the ravine (krantz) to the other side. You land on a platform, are disconnected from the one zipline and attached to the next, and off you go again – six times.


Storms River - Canopy Touring in Tsitsikamma Forest

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...

Most platforms on the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour 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 2½ to 3 hours.
