Kruger Bush Safaris
Canopy tours were first developed in Costa Rica, as a means for research biologists to work in a forest canopy. This concept was then adapted to accommodate tourists and has become extremely popular. There are now a number of canopy tour operators in Costa Rico and the concept is gaining worldwide recognition and momentum as an eco friendly tourism venture, with minimal impact to the environment.
The concept of a canopy tour is exactly that. It allows one to move around meters off the ground, in a forest canopy.
Each section of the trail varies in length, from 70 m to 230 m, linking a total of ten platforms, making this the longest cable trail in Africa (1.2 km). The trail has been designed and built to South African civil engineering standards. All the equipment has been designed specifically for this activity and tried and tested worldwide. All the groups are escorted by qualified guides.
Up to eight participants can be accommodated per trip, on scheduled departures. Larger groups can be accommodated over several trips. There is also a special team building package on the offer.
This adventure activity is suitable for families and people of all ages. However, children under ten years might need to be assisted.
