Overall good. My right glove was in bad shape so I got a blister. There was no choice for lunch. At other canopy tours, you do have a choice.

Did the canopy tour today. We had no booking, but luckily could join another tour. I found it relatively pricy for 600R, including a mediocre sandwich afterwards. Our total group size of 16 was way too big, we moved slowly through the trees. The ziplines themselves are phenomenal, absolutely a must if in the area. The management can improve on... More

We had such a lovely day. Our tour guides Bongi and Vumi were amazing- from historic and nature information to jokes and making the tour fun. We had a blast on the 12 zip lines. We weren't going to buy the memory stick with the video and photos of our tour; but we did after realising the guide with the... More

An exhilarating experience - enjoyed by everyone, young & old(er). As a company event, coupled together with the Fear Factor with Kai Schultz - a brilliant team building experience !!!!!!

I was a little anxious to do the canopy tour, being 62 and generally not super sporty but it was absolutely amazing. The tour guides Thuli and Vulime were patient with this 'old' lady and though we started with a little zip line, by the end I was loving every second. The photographer was also excellent and we have wonderful... More

We were just to 2 of us as it was low season. We had a lot of fun! After a short 4WD drive we were taken to the beginning of the canopy. The rides are amazing, some are very high, some are very long, some are very fast. We really enjoyed it and it is something you should do when... More

They will take you near to the start with a truck. Then you climb down to the first zip line. A small one. This is just to settle your nerves because in the back of your mind is the zip line that is 65 meters from the ground. Your friendly guides help you however to enjoy every stage of the... More

This was our second canopy tour and it was such a delight for the senses! The guides were friendly and helpful. The meal was okay and the video fun to watch. We are still hooked on Canopy Tours!
