Where To Go Zip-lining In Cape Town

16 March 2019 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in The Great Outdoors

Ziplining in Cape Town

Staying cooped up in the house and being surrounded by all our modern comforts are great but we can all do with a little extra fresh air and exhilaration in our lives. Cape Town is filled with so many amazing hiking trails, parks, beaches and more to keep you occupied. But if you're looking for a little extra adrenaline then why not consider zipping from one platform to another via steel cables bolted to the sides of mountains.

Yes, I am talking about ziplining and having done it a number of times myself I can vouch for the blood pumping fun you can have being whisked through the air at high speeds with only a glove to slow you down.

While the safety of participants is of paramount importance, make no mistake this is really one unique way to view the natural beauty of Cape Town and is a fun activity for the whole family.

So where can you "foefie slide" in and around Cape Town? Let's find out.
