Overview
If staying in Joberg or Pretoria, this zipline tour of the Megaliesberg Mountains is a must-do day-trip. One of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, Magaliesberg’s unique geology and natural beauty has drawn climbers and nature-lovers since the early 1900s. Satisfy your every thrill-seeking itch and strap into your sliding harnesses to safely zoom over picturesque Ysterhout Gorge via 10 cliff-side platforms built to the highest safety standards.
What to Expect
The 2400 million year old Magaliesberg Mountains are rich in indigenous fauna and flora, with a history to match.

Slide in zig zag formation across the top of Ysterhout gorge from 11 platforms, constructed high into the cliff faces, joined by 10 cabled slides, up to 140 long and in places 30m above the canopy floor.

The experience begins with a safety briefing at the Canopy Tour offices, during which you will also be kitted out with a sliding harness, safety helmet, sliding glove and pulley.

After the briefing you will be transported approximately 2 km up the mountain to the first platform. This is where your unforgettable adventure begins.

During the tour your guides will keep you entertained and informed with interesting facts about this ancient wonderland.

Safety is paramount and the system has been built to the highest civil engineering standards. All equipment is state of the art and guides are fully trained.

Tours depart at 30min intervals, 7 days per week, from the Canopy Tour offices and are restricted to a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 persons per tour.

The tour takes about 2.5 – 3 hours to complete. Anyone between the ages of 7 to 70 can go on a tour, although we have made exceptions in the past depending on the fitness of older people and whether or not the harness fits properly on a younger child.
