Ever wondered what it would be like to be a bird soaring above the forest canopy? Well, it’s not an impossible dream as canopy tours allow you to do just that.

These adventure tours involve sliding from one high level platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30m above the forest floor. The tours usually feature 7 to 10 platforms and can take up to 3 hrs to complete.

The views are spectacular and you have the opportunity to look down on the forest and valleys much as birds do.

So if you are into nature and seeing things from a different perspective, don’t miss this opportunity to soar through the tree tops!
A word on Cable Tours & Zip Lines:
  Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees. - Karle Wilson Baker

Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going to fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
- Eddie Cantor
 


Equipment:

All the necessary equipment for this outdoor adventure, including state of the art body harness, helmet, pulley and climbing gear will be supplied to you by the operators and you will have a full briefing on how to slide down the cables before you embark on your epic journey.

Safety:

To ensure your safety and to enhance this adventure sports experience, each group is accompanied by safety guides who also have an intimate knowledge of the fauna and flora of the area. And if you are a bit nervous, you can always opt to go in tandem with your own guide who will look after the sliding bit for you, leaving you to marvel at your surroundings.

The whole setup of platforms and cables is constructed according to strict civil engineering standards and adheres to environmental management requirements.

History:

Canopy tours originated from the efforts of biologists who wanted to study the diversity of plant and animal life in the upper canopies of forests. With a bit of lateral thinking involved, the first platform and pulley system was developed in the rain forests of Costa Rica to allow some biologists to examine the previously inaccessible ecosystems.

Needless to say, you can’t keep a good idea quiet, and soon a new form of eco tourism and outdoor adventure was launched in the upper reaches of forests in selected areas around the world!
