Magaliesberg Canopy Tours boasts a one-of-a-kind eco-adventure within the spectacular Ysterhout Kloof region. Here, within the 2 400-million-year-old Magaliesberg mountains, you can explore the tree tops without disturbing (or damaging) what surely rates as one of the most unique and sensitive eco-systems in the world.
Harness up and soar above the rugged ravine, gliding along the 11 platforms constructed high against the rocky cliffs lining the kloof. Each of these is joined by steel cables up to 140 metres in length - in some places up to 30 metres above the stream below. Zigzag high within the indigenous canopy and stop on the platforms to take in the incredible views. Qualified guides add to this remarkable experience, sharing their knowledge on the diverse indigenous fauna and rich birdlife, or imparting detail on the ecology and geology of the region.
Your experience starts with a briefing session at the Magaliesberg Canopy Tour offices where you’ll be kitted out with your harness, safety helmet and sliding glove. Note that parties are restricted to a maximum of eight people, with two trained guides joining each group.
Tours last two to three hours and depart from the nearby Sparkling Waters Hotel and Spa.
To reach the establishment take the R104 from Rustenburg towards Buffelspoort for just on 13 kilometres before turning right onto the D573. Turn left onto the D344 only 2.5 kilometres later and then right again onto the D1491 after 10 kilometres. The Sparkling Water Hotel is about one kilometre further up this road.
