The Drakensberg Canopy Tour

Drakensberg Canopy tourIt’s the longest in the Canopy Tour franchise, and an exciting activity in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg, an area well known for its walks, hikes, outdoor pursuits and stunning mountain scenery. The tour takes place in the indigenous Blue Grotto forest located on the property of the Drakensberg Sun Lifestyle Resort in the Central Drakensberg’s Champagne Valley. Comprising 12 slides that zigzag above, below and even through the indigenous forest canopy, it’s a breezy escapade for thrill-seekers.

The Karkloof Canopy Tour

Karkloof Canoy Tour - Fun for kids too.

The Karkloof Canopy Tour begins with a detailed safety briefing followed by a ‘Kitting up’ session where full body harness, pulleys and climbing equipment are put on and checked for safety. A short scenic 4×4 drive to the top of the Karkloof valley and it is time to monkey around! From the start on the launch platform a new world unfolds as one gently glides on a steel cable to the first platform. All groups are escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a safety guide to ensure your safety as you slide from tree to tree.
