Aerial Cable Trails - aka Canopy Tours
Experience the thrill of the longest aerial cable trail in Africa!
Launch yourself into the space above the tree canopy – glide over the valley – breathe in the magic of true, unspoilt nature from the elevated Platforms. Spend the morning letting your spirit soar high above the trees in this corner of Africa!
Experience the freedom of gliding over one of the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River adjacent to the Kruger National Park. The aerial cable trail takes you down into the valley basin, stopping along the way on a number of elevated platforms to admire the natural vegetation, birdlife and the views of the forest floor below.
Each section of the trail varies in length from 70 to 230 meters linking a total of 10 platforms, making this the longest cable trail in Africa (1,2km). The trail has been designed and built to South African civil engineering standards and all the equipment has been designed specifically for this activity and tried and tested worldwide. All groups are escorted by qualified guides.
Participants meet at Gecko Lodge, just outside Hazyview, to complete the necessary documentation before being kitted out and briefed. Guests are then transported to the starting point of the trail. After the trail has been completed, participants are returned to Gecko Lodge where meals and refreshments can be arranged if required. Bottled water is provided during the trail.
