A Canopy Tour® takes you on an unforgettable adventure as you slide from one platform to the next along a series of steel cables set amongst magnificent natural surroundings. It is widely regarded as one of the best eco-adventure activities in the world and is something for people of all ages with the youngest being 3 and the oldest 90 so far to do the tour. The concept of Canopy Tour originated in the rain forests of Costa Rica, where scientists were studying animals and birds in the Canopy Layer of the Forest. Safely sliding from tree to tree to a series of platforms became a novel way to see the flora and fauna of an indigenous forest. A whole new level of appreciation was born when the concept became one of South Africa’s most popular eco adventure activities. Karkloof canopy tour is only 1:30 from Durban, near Howick in the Midlands, this is a must do activity especially for nature lovers or adventure seekers looking to do something truly unique. Professional guides assure the safety of each group and point out interesting facts along the way. It’s ideal for team building, kid’s parties, family get-togethers, corporate events or just a fun day out. Open every day, with tours every half an hour from 8am to 3pm. Come experience one of South Africa’s fastest growing eco-adventures with thousands of satisfied thrill-seekers having already caught the bug.

I had the most amazing time, wow. The guides are wonderful and the canopy tour is just beautiful. It is exhilarating and EVERY ONE can manage it. I get pretty nervous with heights and I really loved it. Wear sunscreen and a light sweater.

I mistakenly booked a tour at the Drakensberg Canopy Tour thinking it was this one, which was closer to where I was staying. The Drakensberg location called me to confirm, realized the mistake, and called the Karkloof location for me. The Karkloof Canopy Tour took...More

This experience is beyond words. To enjoy the lush view of Southern Africa's second largest indigenous forest from atop its canopy at 35m high is something else. Totally memorable, heartstopping, breathtaking, adrenaline pumping and simply enjoyable all at once. A must do experience for anyone...More

Let me start by saying that the zip line itself is cool...it's a fun activity and having been to some similar places in France there is certainly more engineering here (Most of the platforms are purpose built steel structures) The African staff are very friendly...More
