The Garden Route is the name given to a scenic stretch of coastline that runs along South Africa's south-eastern coastline from Heidelberg all the way up to Storms River on the border of the Eastern and Western Cape. Incorporating popular towns such as Knysna, Plettenberg and Mossel Bay, the Garden Route also travels inland to include the quaint Karoo town of Oudtshoorn.
The scenic route is bordered by the Indian Ocean on one side and the magnificent Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains on the other side providing a magnificent backdrop of which to base your explorations.
The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours is a unique experience that finds one gliding and racing through the Tsitsikamma Forest along a steel cable, the longest one being 100m long. Attached to the cable by a harness, visitors traverse the forest from one platform to another, suspended up to 30 metres above the ground.
The 2.5 - 3 hour adventure takes one on a unique guided tour through the forest. As you slide from platform to platform your friendly guide teaches you more about your surroundings, providing interesting facts about the forest and its history.
During your time in the Garden Route head towards the town of Wilderness where an experience of a lifetime awaits. Run towards the end of a cliff and jump off. Soar above the trees and rooftops as you float along the thermals before gently landing on the soft sandy beach below.
Cloudbase Paragliding is run by the highly skilled and experienced team of Jan Minaar and Khobi Bowden. Offering tandem paragliding flights as well as flying tuition visitors choosing to embark on a flight with Cloudbase Paragliding will marvel at the experience of flying high above the clouds.
