The beauty of the Cape Overberg is rivalled only by the many adventures and extreme sports on offer in this quiet, unspoilt part of the world. The Cape Canopy Tour is conducted in the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, which is less than 100 kilometres away from the vibrant Mother City of Cape Town, where the shopping hubs and nightlife never die.
The Cape Canopy Tour invites visitors to experience the natural bounty of the area with liberal lashings of adrenalin and adventure. Each tour is conducted by an experienced guide that will provide a full safety briefing as well as interesting information and insight along the way, with plenty of fun. A 4 x 4 drive will take visitors into the mountains for their ziplining adventure to begin. There, they will find a series of 13 elevated platforms, slides (some of which are more than 300 metres in length), as well as a swing bridge that is guaranteed to get the heart racing.
Slide across valleys, waterfalls and the unspoilt Western Cape vegetation from dizzying heights, suspended only by a harness that is securely attached overhead. Small groups are optimal, and guides will ensure that each adrenalin-junkie gets the most out of their time swinging giddily above the gorgeous terrain below. A light lunch is served afterwards; the perfect way to round off a day of fun and exhilaration.
Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, making it a very special place to visit, even for those less inclined towards pushing their adrenalin boundaries. The larger region of Elgin is known as the home of wine, fruit and flowers, which lends it an irresistible allure for young and old alike.
