This must rate as the best zip line in the country. A very high line over the gorge and then a long one over the lake. Really a great day.

A wonderful family outing in a beautiful part of our wonderful country! Not for me - too scared, but the rest of the family loved it. The game viewing on the way was an added bonus.

I decided to take my 6 year old daughter and my 59 year old mother to go do the zip lines... both truly enjoyed the experience. I did get a free guide to tandem with my daughter.

For my friend's Dirty 30th Birthday we headed down to Mount Eland for the Zip Line experience. Boy was it a wonderful, dirty, crazy experience filled with loads of screams and laughter. Although it was slightly windy, getting us stuck midway over the Gorge, we made the most of it as scary as it seemed! The Zip Line staff are... More

This is a spectacular Setting for a series of Zip Lines All the way down to the lake. Unfortunately the outing was spoilt for some by the following. 1. Gloves not maintained correctly. Some have thick stiff leather padding which works well when used for breaking. Others have been repaired using what looks like automotive leather off cuts. This leather... More
