More about Canopy Tour

The Magaliesberg Canopy Tour is located in the Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve – 1 ½ hours from Joburg and 1 hour from Pretoria.

Eleven platforms have been built against the cliff and rock faces of the spectacular Ysterhout Kloof, a beautiful gorge carved out of the mountainside, and are joined by long steel cables that you slide along to reach the next platform. Much like a “foefie” slide, the canopy tour essentially involves zigzagging down the kloof while stopping at each platform to admire the expansive views and surrounding ecology.

The Magaliesberg mountains are home to a wide variety of plant, animal, and birdlife – watch out for the shy klipspringer jumping from rock to rock below you or look up to spot an endangered black eagle circling above. Two trained canopy guides assure the safety of each participant while describing interesting facts about the indigenous plants, bird life, ecology and geology of the area.

We had an amazing family day, for some of us it was the first time and the guys really gave them the confident to enjoy and feel safe. The team was great & we had an amazing day, the safety aspects all round were excellent and we will be back to enjoy it again. Regards Brian.

The experience was great and the staff made it even better. The staff was brilliant, they knew exactly what to do and say. We enjoyed every minute

Anton Burger

The canopy tour was great and exhilarating. But the best was the friendly and professional service we got from our guides, Danger and 1Kg, they are humourous and lively guys who do their job well and who kept our safety a priority all through the canopy tour. Thanks again.
