THE quiet stillness of the forest is broken by screams and screetches – often not from that of the forest’s natural inhabitants, but from much larger flying objects – adventure seekers zip-lining from tree to tree across the forest canopy.

Armed with plenty of courage, we are set to take on Stormsriver Adventures’ Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour – a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest on the Garden Route.
