The guides were excellent and kept us entertained for the whole tour. The tour itself was great fun and the thrill of gliding over the gorge was magic. Included in the price was some food an wasn't too bad. They also offer to buy your DVD of whole experience + 200 pics. Downside of the DVD is that when we... More

Was a great experience. The safety aspect was top notch! I felt safe and in the very capable hands of our two guides, never really had time to dwell on the fact that I was on the edge of a cliff! Would do it again

There is training and safety regulations. You drive into the mountains and then a short walk to the first slide. The slides are fun!! the staff are friendly and very helpful. My daughter was 8 at the time and very scared the slides. The staff were amazing sliding with her every time to make her feel safe and comfortable. Eventually... More

Safe and great fun for the family! Just make sure all the kids are up for the challenge! Beautiful part of the Magalies mountains, lots of birds and indigenous trees and plants to make the trip more interesting.

Is fine for a day out with friends really. You need to buy beers, have some fire wood and bring meet to braai. Is very good out door for socializing.

We did this canopy tour during our holiday to South Africa and Zimbabwe and what an experience it was. There was 6 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The guides were excellent and kept us entertained for the whole tour. The tour itself was great fun and the thrill of gliding over the gorge was magic. Our group... More

What a rush. The staff are most professional and helpful. From the time of your arrival and fitting out in your harness, loading you into the truck and driving you to your start point, the guides make sure you are pampered and entertained. The slides range from about 60 metres to 145 metres (ther are 11 of them) and sliding... More

Having already done similar things to this in the UK I was really looking forward to swinging my way over the river gorge and I was not disappointed. The scenery was stunning and it was fantastic to swing my way from one side of the gorge to the the other. The guides/instructors were fantastic. Very well informed on the local... More

Well worth the visit. Swinging from platform to platform over the river gorge was an adrenalin rush or note, and a great way to spend a cold Saturday. The guides, Mike and Pabi were fun, attentive, and gave an 'extra' to the day.
