Full description
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.

    What an excellent afternoon! The two guides were fab and one was very entertaining! Good safety briefing. Felt very safe although also a bit scared too before taking the step off the platform! Nice to have a meal and drink afterwards which is included in the price. Ten platforms in total which felt lovely and indulgent!

    Amazing tour in a group of eight people. Lots of fun, super friendly guides and pretty thrilling. Even when afraid of heights, you feel secure all the time. Being eight people involved some waiting as we zipped down one by one, but time flew by quite easily. Definitely worth a visit and well spend time and money. A clear recommendation
