Canopy Touring is one of Swaziland's newest adventure activities, with this recently established site being rated as one of the best in Southern Africa. The backdrop of Malolotja Nature Reserve and its rolling wilderness of mountain peaks is juxtaposed against the intimate exploration of the Majolomba River Gorge. Its vivid rock formations, rich montane vegetation and active birdlife can only be accessed from above.
Attached to a system of cableways and platforms and gliding between tall forest trees and from cliff-face to cliff, your experience may seem somewhat unreal or dreamlike... but certainly not it is an outing that will never be forgotten.
