Ziplining in The Treetops
The Tsitsikamma Forest is an ancient labyrinth with 116 types of trees, including the famous Big Tree. The towering Outeniqua yellowwood is estimated to be over 800 years old, and at 36.6m high, you can see where it got its name.
The entire Tsitsikamma area stretches across from Bloukrans River all the way to the Eerste Rivier.
The Tsitsikamma zipline takes you through the tree canopy 30m above ground, and into the stunning heart of the forest. On the tour, you will zip between 10 fully tree-based platforms, the only route of its kind in Africa.
Make your way through towering trees, covered in grandfather’s beard, and learn about the indigenous flora surrounding you. Tsitsikamma forest is the home of hard pear trees, hundred-year-old tree ferns, and Tsitsikamma’s pride – the Outeniqua yellowwood.
The stunning rainforest is also home to a number of indigenous southern African animals. Keep an eye out for:
- Blue duiker
- Knysna loerie
- Cape porcupine
- Small grey mongoose
