Go on a journey through the Ecology and Geology, of one of the oldest Mountain Ranges in the World – estimated to be 2,500 million Years old, is the majestic Magaliesberg. Located in the Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve, the Magaliesberg Canopy Tour is just 1 ½ hours from Johannesburg and 1 hour from Pretoria.

The Magaliesberg Range is home to a wide variety of plant, bird and animal life. With some luck, you may spot a Duiker or a shy Klipspringer jumping from rock to rock. Look up and you are likely to spot our breeding pair of Black Eagles circling above. Rock Rabbits (Dassies) are abundant and, depending on the time of day, they may be running around playfully or lazing in the sun on an exposed rock.

Magaliesberg has an established route through a wooded and often Mountainous Landscape making primary use of zip lines and aerial Bridges between platforms built in trees. Eager but nervous adventuresses, are harnessed to a steel cable without interruption throughout the entire tour for safety. "Zip-lining” is the act of gliding along a suspended cable (i.e., the term “zip-lining” refers to the activity itself), whereas references to “canopy tours” describe opportunities to participate in the zip-lining activity. (The distance from Sun City to Magaliesburg is 85.4 kms.)

Safety has always been our top priority and you can rest assured that it remains our primary concern.

✅ implementing strict hygiene measures as recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Department of Health.

✅ abiding by all recommendations made by the Department of Tourism and any further procedures issued by the Department of Health

✅ identifying clients who may have been in high-risk regions recently (the past 14 days) and rescheduling their Canopy Tour or refunding them in full.

✅ monitoring closely the health of our guides and staff: testing, self-isolation or quarantine will be implemented where necessary.

✅ "introducing private tours so that you can zip-line exclusively as a family or group of friends. In addition, we are stringently following developments on a Local and National level and have daily meetings to ensure we respond quickly to any changes and will keep you updated in turn. This way we can continue to operate as safely as possible and offer our guests the opportunity to get outdoors, soar through the ancient Magaliesberg mountains, see some wildlife and enjoy the thrill of zip-lining with us."
