Cape Canopy Tour brings you the ultimate guided adventure tour. If you are keen for a new experience, the chance to learn and see more in nature and want some excitement, then this is the tour for you. Explore the Hottentots Nature Reserve from new heights and explore this world heritage site in all its glory.

Anybody can take part; it doesn’t matter whether you are 5 or 75 …


Cape Canopy Tour


To begin your small group will be given a safety briefing and you will kit up for your adventure. Next up is a thrilling 4×4 ride up into the mountains to where the magic awaits you.  There are two guides to every group, ensuring your safety at all times and to provide you with informative, interesting facts about the area and the nature surrounding you.

Once on the first platform you hook up to the guide ropes and slide across valleys and waterfalls way above the trees to the next platform. You will journey across 13 different platforms and go on slides up to 320 meters in length, all while you discover spectacular views and breathtaking scenery.

When the tour has come to an end, you will walk back down to the 4x4s and be transported back to the start where you can enjoy a light lunch with your tour group and talk about all the wonderful experiences and sights.

It is certainly advisable to bring warm clothes with you as you never know what the Cape weather has in store for you, especially when you are up in the mountains. Ensure you wear comfortable shoes to walk in and don’t worry too much if it starts to rain, the Canopy Tour team will ensure you have all the rain gear you need.

Michelle Rawlinson


Michelle has a huge love for all things aquatic, particularly marine life. Her main passion lies with Great White Sharks, although she is interested in all marine species and their well-being. She volunteers at the Two Oceans Aquarium in her spare time and would spend all her time by the sea or surrounded by nature if possible. After spending 7 years in the United Kingdom, she has returned back home to Cape Town to be nearer to her family and to her ‘favourite place in the world’. She enjoys camping, fishing, watching rugby and going out with her friends and family to try out new restaurants and bars.
