Activity description

Experience a Tarzan style adventure of sliding through the forest on a 2 ½ hour canopy tour. Soak in the unequalled beauty of Magaliesberg Mountain range. while traversing 30 metres above the forest floor.

The tour consists of about a kilometre long “foefie” slide divided up into separate slides of various lengths. Slides are joined together by platforms built high on the cliff faces of the 2,500-year-old Magaliesberg mountain range. Slides of up to 140m long provide unforgettable rides and spectacular views.

The experience begins with a briefing session at the Canopy Tour office where you will be tutored on the do's and don'ts during the tour. You will also be kitted out with your harness, pulley, and safety helmet and sliding gloves, this is the opportunity to ask any questions you may have to your guide. After the briefing session you will be transported to the first platform where your adventure begins. As you take off on the first slide you will find yourself entering an enchanting new world where you become one with your natural surroundings.

Enjoy the adrenaline of the slides, or spend a couple of minutes relaxing while your guides enthusiastically explain the ecology of your surroundings. Trained canopy guides ensure the safety of each group while describing interesting facts about the surrounding environment and pointing out bird and plant species.

Safety is priority and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards. All equipment is state of the art and guides are fully trained.

A maximum of 8 people are taken per group but larger group bookings can be accommodated.
