Magaliesberg Canopy Tour® FAQ s
What to Bring
You should wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe footwear. Slip-slops are not suitable as they will simply fall off during your zip line. Shorts or long pants are fine but mini-skirts are not due to the harness worn. Running shoes, takkies, and ‘veldskoene’ are perfect and strap-on sandals will do. Don’t forget to bring your camera as there are many excellent photo opportunities along the way and if you submit a photo to our “Photo of the Month” Competition on our website you could win a free Canopy Tour®.

What to Expect
The Magaliesberg Canopy Tour® experience begins with a thorough safety briefing that covers all the do’s and don’ts of the ziplining tour. After the briefing, you will be kitted out with your sliding harness, safety helmet and sliding gloves. The guides check that harnesses are fitted properly and make final adjustments where necessary. To end the briefing, you are given an opportunity to ask questions.
You are now ready to mount the 4×4 vehicle that will transport you up the mountain, over a distance of approximately 2 kilometres, to the drop off zone near the first platform. Look out for the resident Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Duiker, Dassies and many other indigenous animals, bird, reptile and insect species along the way – it makes the trip even more exciting. Disembark, follow your guides on a short walk to the first platform and let the fun begin!
