WELCOME TO KARKLOOF CANOPY TOURS.
the wonderful experience and wonderful views while gliding through the
tree canopy on a Foefie-slide.
Once you arrive on the launch platform you get to see a whole new world opening up before you, as you gently glide on a steel cable to the first platform. As you slide from tree to tree you know you are in safe hands because you and the rest of your group are being escorted through the forest canopy by a lead guide and a following guide to ensure your safety at all times. The platforms are built high up in the forest canopy, all offering magnificent and breath taking views of the surrounding forest, a magnificent 20m waterfall, clear sparkling forest stream and across the expansive Karkloof valley far below.
time and spend a couple of minutes relaxing on each platform while your
guides enthusiastically explain the ecology of the forest – pointing
out different trees and the magnificent giant ferns way below. The bird
life you can see is incredible. There is the chance of you being able
to spot Emerald Cuckoos, Knysna Loeries, a wide variety of raptors and
if you are really lucky, the elusive Narina Trogon or endangered Cape
Parrots. The forest is also home to a variety of mammals, but it is
the loud calls and fearsome tree swinging of the Samango monkeys that
you will remember best.
One of the Foefie-slide you will experience.
Due to our slides being long and fast, and for safety reasons there is a weight restriction of 130 kg for guests who wish to do the tour.
