About Karkloof Canopy Tour

Warm summers and temperate to cool winters make Howick and its mother province of KwaZulu-Natal ideal for visitors all year round. The gorgeous Natal Midlands landscapes are very special, infusing their spectators with a sense of peace and awe. Appreciating this pretty countryside is recommended, but doing it from the elevated ziplining tours of the Karkloof make it an absolute must.

Situated in the Karkloof Nature Reserve, this is a one-of-a-kind eco-experience that is all about fun and adventure. It takes visitors gliding from tree to tree in the safety of a harness, through the second-largest indigenous forest in the country. Platforms have been put around the trees (using a tension system that does not damage the beautiful trunk), and steel cables dangle between these, allowing visitors to slide between towering trees at canopy level, while drinking in the views of the emerald-green valley below.

After some exhilarating aerial rides, stop at the impressive waterfall, which boasts a height of some 15 metres, for a refreshing splash.

The Karkloof Nature Reserve has plenty of wildlife to speak of. Samango monkeys, emerald cuckoos, the Karkloof blue butterfly, duikers, and narina trogons are all part of the local fauna. You may even spot some endangered Cape parrots and the spectacular Knysna loerie.

The Karkloof Canopy Tour comprises 12 platforms and 10 slides, the highest of which is about 40 metres above the ground. It takes around two hours to complete and is suitable for everyone between the ages of five and 80 years of age. After the tour, the group can enjoy refreshments and a light meal as they compare tales of hairy heights and magnificent sights.
