The Karkloof Canopy Tour in KwaZulu-Natal is an exhilarating adventure activity (as you can see from the expression on my sister-in-law’s face as she comes in to land after completing a section of it). During the 2 hour adventure, you and a group of friends will get to experience the area’s magnificent indigenous forest from a unique aerial vantage point, as you slide between 9 platforms. The longest ‘foefi’ slide is about 180m. Secured by a harness, gravity does most of the work, making the activity suitable for almost anyone between the ages of 7 and 70. You’re accompanied by guides at all times and, can go tandem with one of them if you want to. The forest is alive with the calls of birds and monkeys and the high lasts long after you come down from the trees.
