Just an hour from Cape Town, the Cape Canopy Tour is situated in a World Heritage Site within CapeNature’s Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, located in the scenic Elgin Valley.
In 2015 it was listed by Lonely Planet as the 2nd best new experience in the world. In 2019 it again gained Lonely Planet recognition, named as the 2nd best experience in Africa.
The tour consists of eleven thrilling slides, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs and fynbos-covered mountain slopes above the Riviersonderend Gorge. Highlights of the tour include its 13 elevated platforms, and a suspension bridge situated above a double waterfall.
The tour is a fully guided nature experience with a strong emphasis on client comfort and safety. Two trained guides accompany each group on the 4-5 hour tour. They provide information about the endemic fynbos and geology of this unique World Heritage Site.
