Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience at the Malolotja Canopy Tour®, Swaziland’s first official Canopy Tour®.
Situated deep within the pristine mountain wilderness of the Malolotja Nature Reserve, the Malolotja Canopy Tour® offers some of the most dramatic scenery you will ever encounter with striking rock formations, towering cliff faces and views across the lush forest canopy towards the Malolotja mountain peaks.
Experience the thrill of gliding through the forest canopy in one of the last mountain wilderness areas left in Swaziland. The secluded Malolotja Nature Reserve contains plenty of game, amazing birdlife and a world renowned display of wildflowers in spring – all in all the ideal setting for a Canopy Tour®.
The Malolotja Canopy Tour® consists of eleven elevated forest platforms, ten slides and a 50 metre long suspension bridge that crosses the Majolomba River. It’s an experience not to be missed!
What to Bring
You should wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe footwear. Slip-slops are not suitable as they will simply fall off. Shorts or long pants are fine but mini-skirts are not. An application of sun block before you go is a good idea.
Don’t forget to bring your camera as there are many excellent photo opportunities along the way.
What to Expect
Experience the thrill of gliding through the forest canopy in one of the last mountain wilderness areas left in Swaziland. Set within the forested Sihlotswane gorge, adjacent to the famous Malolotja Falls, the Malolotja Canopy Tour® consists of 11 elevated forest platforms, 10 slides and a 50 metre long suspension bridge that crosses the Majolomba River.
The protected Malolotja Nature Reserve contains a wide variety of mammals and birdlife including rare species such as the Forest Canary and Ground Woodpecker. The tour includes a long drive in an open game vehicle to the start of the Canopy Tour, where sightings of Blesbuck, Eland, Impala and Zebra are common.
From the moment you launch off the first platform, a new world unfolds as you slide across to the next viewpoint. Once you arrive at the platform we encourage you to stop for a while and enjoy the view while your guide points out interesting features and facts about the surrounding ecology.
The tour lasts typically 3 hours after which you will return to the reception to swop stories and enjoy some well-deserved refreshments. Don’t forget to bring your camera as there are some great photo opportunities along the way!
