About 39km from Koester Glamping Farm is a place that will make you sweat… Make your heart beat faster… Get your adrenaline pumping… Possibly terrify you… But will be a whole lot of fun!
Magaliesberg Canopy Tours® offers a unique eco-adventure through the ecology and geology of the second oldest mountain range in the world (2,400 million years old to be exact). They have built 11 platforms against the rock faces of the spectacular Ysterhout Kloof, joined by 10 slides up to 140m long. In some spots, the slides are about 30m above the canopy floor!
Did you know? Canopy tours originated in Costa Rica when biologists constructed a system of cables and platforms to study the diversity of wildlife in the upper canopy level. The first canopy tour in South Africa was built in the Tsitsikamma Forest at Storms River over 10 years ago.
