The Magoebaskloof Canopy Tour, based on
the Green Frog Farm, is situated near the towns of Tzaneen and
Haenertsburg. This zip line adventure will provide surges of
adrenalin, as adventurers fly over the beautiful, green gorge below.
The powerful sounds of the 3 waterfalls along the route, which are
all around 20m tall, add to the authenticity of this jungle
experience, while the still waters below provide serenity during
breaks along the way.
On arrival, adventurers are given a thorough safety briefing, before
being fitted with harnesses and safety helmets. Those taking part
slide rapidly along various zip lines, stopping at wooden platforms
to change to the next slide.
The tour lasts about 3 hours in total. Refreshments are served
during the adventure, while a meal is offered afterward. Groups of
up to 10 people can be accommodated per session.
The tour is suitable for anyone between the age of 7 and 70. No
previous experience is required, as instructors will provide advice
along the way. For safety reasons, the Magoebaskloof Canopy Tour has
a maximum weight limit of 120kg.
In addition to the waterfalls and the river, the natural scenery
along the route includes various species of trees, as well as an
assortment of wildflowers.
Some of the fauna to keep an eye out for when passing over the
Letaba River gorge includes birdlife such as the Giant kingfisher, a
big, bold, noisy fish hunter.
