SA Forest Adventures has opened the Cape Town Zipline at Silvermist Wine Estate, Constantia Nek, about 21km from the City Centre.
“It’s an awesome experience to tick off your bucket list while in the Mother City,” says Clinton Lerm, the owner of this venture”
This adventure is definitely not for the faint hearted! The new zipline route is one of the longest on the African continent (approximately 2.3km in total), and with SINGLE cables that stretch up to 500m in length and soar 155m above the ground at their highest point.
“It will make you gasp for air,” claims Clinton, who insists that the Cape Town zipline is the most thrilling of all the SA Forest Adventures tours. “You feel as tiny as a rice grain way up there.”
The course is framed by Table Mountain and looks onto the back of the awe-inspiring Twelve Apostles mountain range and down the Constantia Nek valley. Whilst testing your vocal chords you can attempt to appreciate the maginificent views of the ocean, the mountain and the fynbos.
