Our trip through the trees was awesome. Our guides where also very well trained and knowledgeable about the plants and animals in the forest. Safety was also a top priority. Well worth a visit.

We booked for the 10:30 tour and arrived at 9:30, there was space for the 10:00am tour so the team kindly allowed us to join instead of waiting. The tour guides were fun, friendly and informative. They really added to the overall experience. The zip lines were so much fun and the scenery is beautiful. We were also welcomed back... More

I took my 7 yr old son and he felt safe and confident from slide 1-12, especially with the knowledgeable and fun Spha Jnr who guided us safely through the valley! Remember that if you stay at the Drak Sun you get a substantial discount off the canopy tours 💪🏽

If you're in the area you just can't miss this! We visited as a family with 2 older teenagers, very safety conscious, I am nervous of heights and they were great, it's not for anyone very worried about heights but if like me you're just not keen give it a go, once you've done the first couple of smaller runs...

Let's just say I didn't choose to go... Others chose for me telling me that it would be a fabulous experience but zipping around on lines really isn't 'my thing' so I was rather nervous. However, the expert guides ensured that I knew exactly what I had to do and provided much (needed) assurance and patience. By the time the... More

In the words of my children: "It was the BEST experience ever!" The guides, Sthabiso and Wonder, were truly great, helpful and fun to be with. This is something everybody should have and tick off on their bucket list! We want to go do all of the other Canopy Tours in the country now!!

The experience was fantastic. Guide was great and so were the rest of the team. Just felt that 2 of the Slides were a bit fast so could not enjoy the scenery. Overall a great time was had.

We spent a most enjoyable morning with the guys from Drakensberg Canopy Tours during our December holiday. The zipline tour takes about 3 hours, where you zip through along 12 lines, at varying speeds and heights. The guides are very friendly and take the time to explain safety procedures and always ensure you know what you need to do to... More
