Description

Located in the Elgin Valley near Grabouw and scaling the rugged Hottentots Holland mountains in the Cape Nature Reserve of the same name, the Cape Canopy Tour has been listed as one of the world’s hottest new tourism experiences.  The previously inaccessible craggy area is a World Heritage Site with dramatic scenery. The Cape Canopy tour is described by Lonely Planet as "virtigo-tinged fun". This is a fully guided adventure activity for nature enthusiasts of ages 5 to 75!

You travel through Summerset West to the magnificent Sir Lowry's Pass into the Overberg and the Elgin Valley. The Elgin Valley is one of the Cape's most beautiful fruit growing areas, is literally an hour's drive from Cape Town and one of the Western Cape's better-kept secrets. From here a half hour drive takes you up into the Hottentots Holland Mountains, which are part of the Cape Fold Belt in the Western Cape.  You will be rewarded with dramatic vistas and unique fynbos, heathland vegetation that is indigenous to South Africa.   

At the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, home to the Cape Canopy Tour, you will be fully briefed and kitted up for your great adventure.  A 4X4 will transport you high up into the mountain range.  And here is where the fun begins!!  

While waiting for your canopy tour you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. 

Professional guides ensure the strictest safety standards so that you can enjoy the best experience as you whiz along 320m of steel cables with 13 platforms over rugged, steep gorges and picturesque waterfalls.  On the short walk back down to your vehicle you will enjoy the views and vegetation in this mountain kingdom.

Relax as you journey back to Cape Town through the beautiful countryside.  Arrive back at the hotel in Cape Town in the early afternoon.
