This world renowned waterfall zipline tour takes you across the Kruis River. You'll go on 8 slides totaling 822m (2697 feet) of which the longest is 211m (692 feet).
What makes the Tsitsikamma waterfall zipline tour unique is that you have the opportunity to safely slide on a zip line across 3 beautiful waterfalls surrounded by indigenous trees and plants. This eco-adventure is sure to give you an adrenaline rush as you zigzag across the Kruis River with the wind in your face. You will hear the rush of the waterfalls throughout the zipline tour.
If for some reason you are unable to enjoy the zipline tour, you are more than welcome to take a walk along the footpaths, decks and suspension bridge overlooking the beauty of the waterfalls and nature.
Situated 8km’s east of Storms River Bridge (Paul Sauer bridge) on the N2, Tsitsikamma Falls Adventure Park offers spectacular zipline adventure slides across the Kruis River. The eight slides, of which the longest is 211m, zigzag along cables across the river gorge, as high as 50m above the water in some places.
Each section presents its own surprises, adventure, wonders and beautiful views over indigenous Tsitsikamma fauna and flora. You can control the speed of your descent, allowing you to stop midcable to take in some of the awesome views over the waterfalls. The guides provide interesting commentary about the area as you traverse the gorge and waterfalls.

On the fifth slide, you will cross over the first waterfall and land on a platform above the crest of the second waterfall. On the sixth slide of 165 meters you’ll cross over two more stunning waterfalls, passing the cliffs that are only an arm's length away. From there you’ll walk up a pathway approximately 150 meters where you will receive a refreshing drink.

If you choose to, you can take a short walk to the suspension bridge where the abseiling takes place and get a stunning view from above the second waterfall.

This slide is 211m (692 feet) long and at times 50 meters (20 stories) above the ground.
