Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour
Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours is a unique Eco Wilderness Adventure
The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour© is a unique Eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters above the forest floor. Most platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2½ to 3 hours
Slide from Tree to Tree Through the Tsitsikamma Forest
