1. Tanna Michel at Magoebaskloof Canopy Tour
What we loved about this shot is how it showcases the natural beauty of the system, the pop of colour in the shoes, how crisp and well composed the shot is. We also thought it was pretty cool to see the waterfall from this angle, splitting into two streams.
2. Barry Ndlovu at Magoebaskloof Canopy Tour
What we loved about this shot is that it captures the sense of joy and exhilaration of sharing a zipline adventure with friends and family in the great outdoors – just look at those broad smiles.
3. Nicky Lloyd at Cape Canopy Tour
What we loved about this shot is that its beautiful green hues that showcase the magnificent sense of space and super-long ziplines that await you up in the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve mountains.
4. Reafon Gates at Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour
What we love about this shot is its bright, bold colours; the sense of speed, exhilaration and wild fun that ziplining through the treetops affords.
5. Grant Butler at Karkloof Canopy Tour
What we loved about this photograph is the rush of coming in to land it captures as well as how profoundly immersed in nature our systems are: you really can get up close and personal with the fauna and flora when you zipline at one of our branches.
6. Krista Noonan at Cape Canopy Tour
What we love about this shot is its powerful call to adventure: it captures a sense of mystery, exhilaration and accomplishment – “Look how far we ziplined!” or even perhaps “Take me to the top of the world!” and offers a dramatic view of the Hottentots Holland mountains.
7. Phillip Tshabalala at Drakensberg Canopy Tour
What we loved about this shot is its bright colours against grey skies, Cheshire Cat grins of anticipation, courageous kiddies geared & ready to zipline and the sense of family fun it captures – because nothing beats adventuring in the great outdoors together.
8. Stuart Gillmer at Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour
What we loved about this action shot is that it was snapped might flight as he ziplined through the treetops while showing the ‘shaka’ sign with a gloved hand. Talk about coordination! Interestingly, the shaka sign is associated with surf culture and hails from Hawaii where it conveys the spirit of “Aloha”. Aloha is understood as friendship, compassion and solidarity – much like our ubuntu and certainly captures the spirit of camaraderie amoungst adventures in the great outdoors.
Now we want to hear from you which is the best shot of these 8… and remember, one lucky voter will win a voucher to experience the magic of ziplining themselves!
Creating magical memories with family: Milanie’s story
Self-proclaimed South African bushbaby, Milanie brought her whole family to monkey about in the treetops with our Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour crew – an adventure that took almost 2 decades years to arrange.

The power of adventure: Elmarie’s inspiring story
Your feedback is what makes our work worthwhile so whenever a guest takes the time to get in touch and share their experience, it’s a real highlight for us. Recently Elmarie arranged a top-secret #flyAirNature birthday surprise at Magaliesberg Canopy Tour for her husband. He’d be told not to plan anything for the day, he…
We’re already halfway through 2021 and are grateful our branches are buzzing with zipliners. This time last year, we were in lockdown and unable to share the #flyAirNature rush with avid adventurers. So we took a moment to reflect on what we learned from the challenge of not being able to work, why we love…
