The zipslide excursion, 'foefieslide' adventure takes place above the Koekedouw River in the lovely mountains surrounding the Ceres Valley.
With a mere 1½ hour drive from Cape Town, this is the perfect breakaway from the hectic city life!
The Ceres zip slide excursion offers 8 slides, totalling a length of 1.4km! The amazing rock formations and river form a perfect backdrop to a fun, adrenaline-filled adventure!
The surrounding Skurweberg Mountains forms a picturesque backdrop to your outing.
You will be kitted up in a full body harness with state of the art equipment (the in-house patented braking system) and then 2 fully-trained guides will take you on the zipline outing into the mountain.
A short walk takes you to the departure point at the first slide, from where the breath-taking view reaches over the town of Ceres and across the Ceres Valley. Here the fun starts!
The slides vary in lengths from 100 meters to 291 meters! The highest point above the ground is 40 meters. The duration of the tour is group size dependant (1–1.5 hours on average).
You can set out in all weather conditions, there are no group size restrictions and children from 3 years old can take part in this amazing adventure!
The outing will last between 1 hour to 1.5 hours.
