The Limpopo Province in South Africa is one that is abundant in natural splendor, history (even relics and fossils dating back to prehistoric times) and plenty of pure African culture and heritage. Magoebaskloof is situated between Tzaneen and Polokwane and was once completely inaccessible by human beings, due to its dense vegetation and its location.
It is for this reason that the Magoebaskloof Canopy Tours are so special. They take you to a place in this glorious country that has not been touched by urbanization, commerce or development. Rather, this is a place of dense, verdant greenery, misty waterfalls that tumble to the ground in dramatic rumbles and peaceful forests that are home to a huge variety of animal species. There are few more idyllic places on the planet in which to embark on an exciting canopy tour.
Suspended meters above the ground from comfortable, safe harnesses, you can glide above the beauty, seeing it from a new perspective that allows increased visibility and scope. Although these tours are safe and you are always accompanied by a qualified guide, there is no doubt that these slides certainly get the adrenalin pumping and the heart racing as you build up speed high above the ground, soaring over rivers, past waterfalls and through magnificent forests.
Throughout the tour, the guide will point out plants, birds and other interesting sights so that you get the opportunity to see as much as possible. All the slides overlook the stunning Groot Letaba River and the Letaba River Gorge. This is without a doubt one of the most breath-taking waterfall gorges in the country.
The entire tour takes about 2.5 hours and includes a lunch, some refreshments, a guide and transport.
