Wow is all I can say. 12 Ziplines over the most amazing view and sounds of a flowing river below. This was a magical experience I will forever experience. I appreciated the experienced guides who were so polite and understanding as this was my first time ziplining experience. I would certainly do this over and over again.

What a fantastic experience, zip-lining from platform to platform high above the ground. the safety staff were knowledgeable and caring at all times and the thrill of flying left me speechless. I will be back each time i visit the Drakensberg.

Five of us, all approaching 70 years old, completed the 12 zip lines. We enjoyed it immensely and would recommend this activity to both young and old. Our two tour guides were really special with good humour and very helpful. After the tour we had a 500m climb out of the mountain which was rather strenuous. Nevertheless its a must should you be in the region.

This was my first time on the canopy tour. It was stunning beyond. I enjoyed the course. The guides were great, weather also held up well. My only criticism of the experience is that you end up feeling a bit rushed and puppet like on the tour. Whilst safety is of course a huge concern, I feel that the guides get you through quickly whereas I feel that it would have been nicer to clip ourselves , with the supervision of the guides. Some will argue this will take extra time but our trip finished 30min before schedule.

Hello. Thanks for your review. Due to safety being our number one priority, it is not possible for guests to clip themselves on the safety lines. Our guides are trained and highly experienced, with our guests safety being their focus. The lines are high and there is no way we would take any chances. There are possibly smaller zipline companies who would permit this, but Canopy Tour SA does not offer this option. We are however really pleased that you enjoyed the zipline course! :)

What an amazing family experience. Beautiful ancient forest. Staff were amazingly well trained and friendly. My 6year old daughter was at first scared but they made her so comfortable she loved the experience. Definitely recommend this trip if you are in the area. Also reasonably priced. Just one thing: the hike out of the forest at the end is not for frail persons.
