This Canopy Tour is situated in a World Heritage Site within Cape Nature’s Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, located in the beautiful Elgin Valley. This tour consists of eleven amazing zipline slides, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs and fynbos covered mountain slopes above the Riviersonderend Gorge.

Cape Canopy Tour is a guided nature experience with a strong emphasis on client comfort and safety. Two trained guides will accompany each group on the 4-5 hour tour. They will provide information about the endemic fynbos and geology of this World Heritage Site in the Hottentots Holland Mountain range.

A unique suspension bridge between a narrow sandstone ravine, high above a spectacular double waterfall will definitely be one of the unforgettable highlights of the tour.

Cape Canopy Tour is suitable for almost all ages (5 –75years is the recommended limit) and will operate in most weather conditions (rain gear is provided).

Transport from Stellenbosch can be arranged at additional cost

What to bring:

Please ensure you bring warm clothes — weather in the Mountains can be unpredictable. Also bring comfortable shoes to walk in, as there is a short 1km hike out of the gorge, to where the vehicles will pick you up again.


If you have any medical conditions, and are unsure, please contact your doctor before the time.
Clients are advised that the tour includes a 1km hike out afterwards and a bumpy 4×4 trip to the top of the mountain and back.

We suggest a weight restriction per person of approximately 120kg to 130kg – this restriction is not weight related, but rather imposed by the size of the harnesses we use and is based on the circumference of the straps around the body. Tours run every hour on the hour with the first tour leaving at 08:00 and the last tour at 14:00
