Cape Canopy Tour voted 2nd hottest new travel experience by The Lonely Planet

Cape Canopy Tour was launched just a few months ago, and they’ve just been listed as the number 2 must-do experience in The Lonely Planet’s “New In Travel” mini-guide. It is also the only African experience to be included.

It is situated in a World Heritage Site within CapeNature’s Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, located in the scenic Elgin Valley.

The tour consists of eleven slides on fixed cables, some over 300m long, each ending on a platform constructed on the cliffs and fynbos covered mountain slopes above the Riviersonderend Gorge. There is also a suspension bridge between a narrow sandstone ravine, high above a double waterfall.

Owner Ryan Larkman says they were pleasantly surprised to see a spike in visitor numbers and found out it was due to the inclusion of Cape Canopy Tour by the popular travel guide.

They have had visitors who were as young as five and the oldest so far was ninety two.

The package, which takes approximately four-and-a-half hours includes a 4x4 ride and a light lunch, costs R595 per person. If you are in possession of a Wild Card, it is advised to take that along as certain Cape Nature discounts apply.
