TSITSIKAMMA TREETOP CANOPY TOUR
The Tsitsikamma Treetop Canopy Tour is the first of its kind in Africa. Safety is paramount and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards. Imagine the Tsitsikamma Forest….30 meters above, as you gently glide on 10 slides to 10 platforms high up in Giant trees. The platforms provide an unbelievable view of this enchanting New World. Spend a few minutes relaxing while your Guides enthusiastically explain the ecology of the forest – pointing out different trees and magnificent giant ferns way below. You may even sight the Knysna Loerie and the elusive Narina Trogon. About 3 hours later you exit the forest, having undertaken the journey of a lifetime. A delicious light lunch will be waiting for you at our Restaurant.
