About Karkloof Canopy Tour
A Canopy Tour® takes you on an unforgettable adventure as you slide from one platform to the next along a series of steel cables set amongst magnificent natural surroundings. It is widely regarded as one of the best eco-adventure activities in the world and is something for people of all ages with the youngest being 3 and the oldest 90 so far to do the tour. The concept of Canopy Tour originated in the rain forests of Costa Rica, where scientists were studying animals and birds in the Canopy Layer of the Forest. Safely sliding from tree to tree to a series of platforms became a novel way to see the flora and fauna of an indigenous forest. A whole new level of appreciation was born when the concept became one of South Africa’s most popular eco adventure activities. Karkloof canopy tour is only 1:30 from Durban, near Howick in the Midlands, this is a must do activity especially for nature lovers or adventure seekers looking to do something truly unique. Professional guides assure the safety of each group and point out interesting facts along the way. It’s ideal for team building, kid’s parties, family get-togethers, corporate events or just a fun day out. Open every day, with tours every half an hour from 8am to 3pm. Come experience one of South Africa’s fastest growing eco-adventures with thousands of satisfied thrill-seekers having already caught the bug.

Covid protocols not followed by the tour guide. Even though there were signs on the training area requiring masks, and it seemed safe when we took the decision to go on the tour... our guide neither wore his helmet on the zip lines (he carried it on his gear), but also refused to wear a mask (it was around his neck). Even though when looping guests onto the zip line his face was about 6 inches away. I realize this was the outdoors but it seemed like a reckless interpretation of what appeared to be company’s rules. He also did not Wear the mask on the return to the base camp room where we returned our gear. I wonder what other corners the staff take when it comes to client safety, if a staff member is so blatant in their disregard of the rules. Otherwise the tour was nice and we enjoyed ourselves, and the second tour guide followed the “rules” wearing his mask and helmet — so a 50% success rate...

Hi there. Thanks for your honest review. We pride ourselves in maintaining a very high standard of safety for our staff as well as our guests, so it troubles us to read that our guide didn't follow our strict safety regulations. This matter will most definitely receive our immediate attention! Covid-19 is serious and we have serious safety regulations in place, which must be adhered to at all times, by both staff and guests. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We guarantee action! We do hope that you'll visit us again or visit our sister company at Drakensberg Canopy Tour. Stay safe.

Had a fantastic experience! The guides and staff are amazing and very friendly. The views are magnificent and a real adrenaline thrill. Very hot at the start and top of the tour, so wear light and active clothes. Definitely worth it!

We had an amazing experience here - there were 5 of us aged between 8 and 70 and all of us had a blast! Thank you to our guides who were the consummate professionals - assisting all of us as needed whilst maintaining COVID protocol...highly recommended activity - even for those a bit scared of heights. Suggest for those who don’t have mobility issues as some ability to step up onto platforms and walk between a couple of the zip lines up and down steep pathways.

An incredible life experience. The views are amazing. The guides are fantastic. Loved every minute of my experience. I did it as a child but enjoyed the experience more as an adult because I was able to appreciate the beauty of the Karkloof.
