Enjoy the unequaled beauty of indigenous forests, or the ancient Magaliesberg mountain range, while traversing 30 meters above the forest floor. The tour consists of about a kilometer long “foefie” slide divided up into separate slides of varying lengths. Slides are joined together by platforms built high within the canopy of the forest, or on the cliff faces of the 2,400 year old Magaliesberg mountain range. Slides of up to 175 m 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 and you may get a sighting of the Samango monkey, Knysna loeries, the elusive Narina Trogan or the endangered Cape Parrot.

Safety is paramount and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards. All equipment is state of the art and guides are fully trained. Tours depart every half an hour from 6:30 am to 16:30 in summer and 7:00 am to 15:00 in winter, and are conducted in all weather conditions. Suitable for anyone between the ages of 7 and 70. Canopy tours are great for the whole family, groups and corporate team builds. A maximum of 8 people are taken per group but larger group bookings of up to 120 people per day can be handled.
