|Experience the thrill of sliding through the forest on a 2 ½ hour Tarzan and Jane style adventure. Enjoy the unequalled beauty of the ancient 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 varying 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, safety helmet and sliding glove and will be given an opportunity to ask any questions 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 are one with your natural surroundings.
Enjoy the adrenalin 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.
Come and enjoy this pristine environment.
