Wonderful, safety-conscious guides not only took care of us but also made sure that we had good time with lots of laughs. Not for the faint-hearted but an incredible experience with unparalleled views. Just make sure that you're prepared for the hike at the end!

A really awesome experience in the drakensburg. From the reception staff to the driver and tour guides. The most fun experience you will enjoy a have. Long steep walk back to base camp but the best experience u will have on a canopy tour

Great fun and great guides. Amazing views and a nice walk / ZIP through the forest. Even the trip to the start of the zipline in 4X4 is an experience.

We spent a superb few hours doing the Drakensberg Canopy Tour. We did it with or two kids aged 8+9. The guides were excellent. They were accommodating, humerous and very safety conscious. The zip-lines were pretty timid, but they were loads of fun and well...More

It's about 10-15 minutes. About 500m of canopy meandering. Uphill steep walk. no climbing. Still have the gear on but it is doable. Then vehicle brings you back to base
