Garden Route National Park: Tsitsikamma Zipline Canopy Tour

1. Garden Route National Park: Tsitsikamma Zipline Canopy Tour

This is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. Most of the platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2.5 to 3 hours. The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rainforest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment. The tour begins with a detailed safety briefing followed by a kitting up session where full body harness, pulleys, and climbing equipment is issued and checked. A short drive into the Tsitsikamma forest 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 tree platform. All groups are escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a follow guide to ensure your safety as you slide from tree to tree. The platforms are built high up in the giant Outeniqua Yellowwoods and provide an unbelievable view of this enchanting new world, any fear of heights is soon lost as you gather in your new surroundings.

Plettenberg Bay: Canyoning Trip

2. Plettenberg Bay: Canyoning Trip

Check in at the base camp to pick up your wetsuits, harnesses, life jackets and helmets. Once the group is ready, leave base camp for a short drive to the start of your canyon adventure. First, start your ropes course with a gentle 25-meter abseil into the canyon. Then, kick off with your first jump into the river followed by a short swim. Next, if you choose, try your hand at some cliff jumping. For this part of the activity, the highest jump is around of about 7 meters, and lowest 1 meter above the water level, so there are many options if your nerves are getting the better of you. Continue swimming and hiking down the river to The Rush, a waterfall abseil, and seasonally a controlled zip-line over the waterfall. Carry on swimming and hiking down the river until your next adventure, a 55-meter zip-line over a waterfall and into the river below. On completion of the trip, you will be collected from the pick-up point and transported back to the base camp for a nice hot shower, and to collect your pictures of the canyon trip.

The staff were all so friendly and called us several times before our trip to make sure we had not forgotten about our booking and that we made it on time for canyoning. They provided DRY wetsuits for us to wear and also gave us the option to rent shoes so we didn't get ours wet and muddy. I would definitely do this again and recommend the longer canyoning trip to anybody looking to do this.

Something completely different! Most folk won’t get to see those beautiful places. So if you enjoy the outdoors, this is for you. There is a bit of everything and a great bonding experience with the family. Your guides are excellent, providing a safe and humorous experience. Tebz and Puna, you chaps rock! Highly recommended.

Our guides, Sibu & Charnè were amazing. Both were so confident and just knew how to keep their participants calm & relaxed & to rather concentrate on enjoying the experience! My family & I absolutely loved the experience & professionalism displayed by Sibu.

This is a must do activity whilst you’re in plett! Not only was the canyon beautiful but Darren and Steph were amazing guides and such good fun, they pushed us out of our comfort zone. We had a great day and couldn’t recommend it enough!

It was a super unique experience. The two guides did a great job and safety was always the top priority. For us the first but not the last time!
