Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours

Our Knysna guest house is about an hour's drive from the Tsitsikamma forest, making it the ideal base to tour the picturesque Garden Route. The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is the first of its kind in Africa.  The tour takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma Forest with most of the platforms built around giant Outeniqua Yellowwoods up to 700 years old. 

Standing within the crown of these giants and looking down at the lush forest floor thirty metres below is an unforgettable experience. Hold your breath as you slide from tree to tree through the forest, stopping at each new platform while your guides tell you a little more about the surrounding ecology. If you are fortunate you will spot a pair of Knysna Loeries or the brilliant red plumage of the elusive Narina Trogon. Whatever happens, we're quite sure you'll want to do it all over again!
