Drakensberg by Drakensberg Canopy Tour
Situated in an indigenous forest in the Central Drakensberg, in the shadow of the towering Cathkin Peak, the Drakensberg Canopy Tour® awaits you.
The Drakensberg Canopy Tour® begins with a detailed safety briefing followed by a ‘Kitting up’ session where full-body harness, pulleys, and climbing equipment are put on and checked for safety. A short scenic 4×4 drive to the top of the Drakensberg valley and it is time to monkey around! From the start on the launch platform, a new world unfolds as one gently glides on a steel cable to the first platform. All groups are escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a safety guide to ensure your safety as you slide from tree to tree. The platforms are built high up in the forest canopy and all offer different views of the surrounding forest, a magnificent 20m waterfall, clear sparkling forest stream and across the expansive Drakensberg valley far below.
Set within the magnificent Blue Grotto Forest, the Drakensberg Canopy Tour® is guaranteed to take your breath away. The forest is home to over 150 species of birds, which includes the rare Bush Blackcap.
After you arrive at the last platform you will have a 560m hike, through the forest, out of the valley. In some places this can be a bit steep so please watch your footing and take it at your own pace. Once at the top you will be picked up by the 4x4 and driven back down to the base where you will be helped out of your safety equipment.

The Canapy tour at Drakensberg is something that I would recommend any person. Amazing staff, best views! A must when you visiting the Drakensberg!
We had a great experience with my team. It was our first time doing zip line, we enjoyed ourselves a lot. Everyone that assisted us on the day did an outstanding job.
Brilliant! Well worth every penny! Will do it again for sure ?
A really great adventure with awesome guides!
