Only an hour from Cape Town, this is a must do activity for all adventure and nature lovers alike! Cape Canopy Tour takes you on an unforgettable journey as you slide from one platform to the next along a series of steel cables set amongst magnificent natural surroundings of a World Heritage Site, the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, in the scenic Elgin Valley.
