If staying in Johannesburg or Pretoria, then a zipline tour of the Megaliesberg Mountains is a must-do day-trip. One of the oldest mountain ranges in the world – estimated to be 2500 million years old – Magaliesberg’s unique geology and natural beauty has drawn climbers and nature-lovers since the early 1900s. Satisfy your every thrill-seeking itch and strap into your sliding harnesses to safely zoom over picturesque Ysterhout Gorge via 10 cliff-side platforms.
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 Black Eagles circling above. Look down and maybe you’ll see a rock Rabbits (Dassies) or two.
There are many operators and we can help you find just the right one for you and your family, friends or group.
HOW WE RATE IT & WHY WE LIKE IT
Zip lining high over tree tops is exciting and challenging at the same time. The first platform will have you squealing with joy and as you get more confident, you’ll see how easy it is to lean back and enjoy the wind and the sun on your skin. This is an activity that everyone can do, from granny and grandpa to young children (although, not babies of course).
