The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour in South Africa will take you on the adventure of a lifetime. A mysterious and enchanting trip to the Tsitsikamma Forest is an absolute must for a great outing.

The Canopy tour takes place in the stunning Tsitsikamma Forest. The tour involves sliding along steel cables - which are 30 meters above the forest floor - from one high level platform to another. It is an exhilarating experience you will never forget.

The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour has ten platforms and ten slides and lasts roughly 2 ½ hours. It is located at Storms River Village which is 45 minutes from Plettenberg Bay and 1 ½ hours from Port Elizabeth. Don't worry if you feel you will not be able to handle the rides. At the start of the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour you will be given a briefing and will be well educated on what to do and what not to do. This means that you will be well prepared and know exactly what to expect during the tour. You will also be provided with equipment for your safety. Once everything is explained you will be taken to the first platform where your adventure begins. So go for it and take charge.

The Tsitsikamma Forest is built around the gigantic Outeniqua Mountain. The Canopy Tours will give you the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, and combine your experience with lots of fun and pleasure, as you slide from tree to tree through the Tsitsikamma forest. What’s more, the cliff facing the Magaliesberg Mountains offers you some absolutely spectacular views.

Also available on hand are experienced guides who will provide you with information about the surrounding environment and all that there is to see in and around this amazing location. The Tsitsikamma Forest is famous for the Knysna Loerie with its brilliant red plumage, so be sure to look out for these amazing birds.

The Canopy Tsitsikamma tours depart every half an hour from 6:30 to 16:30 in summer and 7:00 to 15:00 in winter. These tours continue in all weather conditions so come along even if the weather isn’t that great. The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours provide a great experience that is suitable for the whole family.
