Named the 2nd Best experience in Africa by TripAdvisor and the 2nd Best new experience in the World by Lonely Planet, Cape Canopy Tour in the Elgin Valley near Grabouw – only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, is among the best canopy tours around.
The canopy tour is run by the same company that built Africa’s first ever canopy tour at Tsitsikamma in the Eastern Cape as well as other experiences such as the Karkloof Canopy Tour; and the Drakensberg Canopy Tour.
Canopy tours involve zip-lining from one platform to another often over vegetation, waterfalls, valleys etc. Thrilled zipliners, who have completed the Cape Canopy Tour course have described it as super fun and safe.
Cape Canopy Tour is situated in the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve and takes you into a previously inaccessible and pristine part of this amazing World Heritage Site.

If your family loves being out in nature, this adventure experience is designed for groups with members aged between 5 and 75 years. It also happens to be a good way to enjoy the outdoors while social distancing.
