Explore the forests of Tsitsikamma on an exciting 30 meter high canopy tour!
- (Port Elizabeth)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
This Canopy Tour offers a unique perspective of the Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest, in the south coast’s scenic Garden Route. Participants can traverse a previously inaccessible ecosystem – whilst suspended 30 metres above the forest floor!
The experience takes place within the lush rainforest of Tsitsikamma, a region synonymous with breath-taking scenery and exciting outdoor activities. Upon arrival, you’ll receive a thorough safety briefing and be provided with a full-body harness, pulleys and climbing equipment. After some final checks and a short drive, you’ll arrive at the launch platform – ready to begin your adventure! During the tour, you’ll glide between 10 treetop platforms, built in the upper branches of giant Outeniqua Yellowwoods and linked by steel cables. Your group will be accompanied by two friendly guides to ensure absolute safety and help broaden your understanding of the forest’s vibrant ecology. If you’re lucky, you can spot the colourful Knysna Loerie or Narina Trogon perched among the centuries-old Stinkwoods and Hard Pears – or maybe Vervet Monkeys swinging high above the giant ferns! After around 3 hours, you’ll return to ground level with a new insight into a remarkable natural environment.
The Garden Route Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is a thrilling opportunity to learn and have fun, whilst also contributing to the forest regeneration project. A voucher would make an unforgettable gift for your favourite nature-lover.
