Just an hour from Cape Town, the Cape Canopy Tour is situated in a World Heritage Site within Cape Nature’s Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, located in the scenic Elgin Valley.
The tour consists of eleven thrilling slides, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs and fynbos covered mountain slopes above the Riviersonderend Gorge. A unique suspension bridge between a narrow sandstone ravine high above a spectacular double waterfall is guaranteed to be one of the unforgettable highlights of the tour.
Cape Canopy Tour is a fully guided nature experience with a strong emphasis on client comfort and safety. Two trained guides will accompany each group on the 3½ hour tour. They will provide information about the endemic fynbos and geology of this unique World Heritage Site. Included in the tour is a 4×4 journey through the nature reserve, refreshments on one of the cliff-side platforms, as well as a light lunch afterwards.
Visitors must arrive 30min prior to their tour time. The duration of the tour is about 4 ½ hours and visitors are advised to bring warm clothes – weather in the Cape can be unpredictable, especially up in the mountains. Comfortable shoes are a must as there is a short hike out of the gorge, to where the vehicles will pick you up again. Rain gear will be provided in wet weather.
