Customer Reviews

The service was great. The guides were helpful and very friendly. - Tiaan Reyneke

The Canopy Tour was a hit with the entire family. Our guides, Bright and Michael, made everyone feel at ease throughout the adventure. Michael ensured that my wife had a safe pleasurable experience as she stepped outside of her comfort zone. Bright was super helpful, offering to take pictures of us as we zipped from platform to platform and even climbing down into the canopy to retrieve my phone when I dropped it (should have let him keep the phone the whole time). The tour was just the right mix of adventure and excitement and natural beauty. - Bob Kane

What a way to see the Zambezi!! Our group of 6 aging from 15 to 53 did the canopy tour in early October and absolutely loved it. We all agreed it was a great activity, despite one of our group being quite nervous beforehand. We were led by 2 very good guides who really knew their stuff, and their attention to safety made us all fell a little more relaxed. There are a series of 9 zip lines ranging from about 100m, to 50m. A couple of them offer oustanding views of the gorge below, although it's a blink and you'll miss it glimpse. Finish off by walking back to The Lookout Cafe, which is a fantastic place to have a drink and lunch while talking about the canopy tour. - Peter Gorman

I didn't know quite what to expect on this tour. Given that my husband and I are in our 70's and had never been zip lining before we were more than a little apprehensive. I was very nervous after the first of the nine 'zips' but the young men who conducted the tour could not have been more helpful. They took every care to make sure our daughter, my husband and I had a memorable and happy experience. I'm glad to say it was. I want to thank those who were so kind and helpful on the day. - Lois Tovey

Awesome views, the team helped my somewhat nervous wife around the whole experience. Frantic way to start our holiday. - Dave & Catherine Benge
