Breathtaking adventure…with a view

Breathtaking adventure…with a view

The Magaliesberg Canopy Tour is a must-do outdoor adventure. Stunning views and heart-thumping slides, high above the Ysterhout Kloof, promises an experience you will never forget.

We as South-Africans are blessed with countless outdoor activities to choose from, yet we never seem to get out there and experience it all.

One activity that should be on your bucket list is the Magaliesburg Canopy Tour. Take a walk on the wild side and experience a journey through the ecology and geology of the second oldest mountain range in the world, from a different perspective. The canopy tour is a safe and fun adventure activity for people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels. Perfect for the whole family!
Located in the Magaliesberg Biosphere reserve, Magalies Canopy Touris less than an hour away from Brits and Hartbeespoort and only half an hour away from Rustenburg.

The Magalies Canopy Tour stretches across eleven platforms,joined by 10 cabled slides up to 140 metres and in places 30 metres above the canopy floor. It is constructed high against the rock faces of the spectacular Ysterhout Kloof, teeming with wildlife, reptiles, birds and gorgeous plant life.

Afraid of heights? No need to be. When arriving at Magaliesberg Canopy Tours, you will attend a thorough safety briefing that covers all the do’s and don’ts of the tour. Highly trained guides will kit you out with your sliding harness, safety helmet and sliding gloves and check that harnesses are properly fitted and make final adjustments where necessary. They will even tandem with you if you are too scared to face the canopy tour alone. Have any questions? The guides will gladly answer any you may have and alleviate your fears. Still nervous? No need to be. It is safety first at Magalies Canopy Tour. The tour has been designed by a civil engineer and they have full public liability insurance cover in place.

A 4×4 vehicle will transport you up the mountain to the drop off zone near the first platform. Two trained guides accompany each tour ensuring your safety while, at the same time, keeping you entertained with interesting facts about the history of the range and its protected Fauna and Flora.

The real fun begins when you hook your harness onto the first line.If the sheer height you are suspended from does not blow your mind, the awe-inspiring surroundings definitely will!

With some luck, you may spot a Duiker or a shy Klipspringer jumping from rock to rock. And if you would rather not look down, when you look up you are likely to spot the breeding pair of Black Eagles circling above. Dassies are abundant and, depending on the time of day, you might see them running around playfully or lazing in the sun.

You should bring your camera as you will find yourself in natural surrounds that you have never or seldom before experienced. Who knows? You might even win a free canopy tour in the ‘Photo of the month’ competition.

R650 per person – includes a safety briefing, 4×4 return trip, all equipment, fully guided 2 ½ hour tour (10 slides, 11 platforms) and a light meal and refreshments. Contact (014) 535 0150 or to book your next adventure.
