Experience the freedom of gliding over one of the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River adjacent to the Kruger National Park. The aerial cable trail takes you down into the valley basin, stopping along the way on a number of elevated platforms to admire the natural vegetation, birdlife and the views of the forest floor below.

Each section of the trail varies in length from 70 to 230 m linking a total of 10 platforms, making the total length of the trail 1.2km. The trail has been designed and built to South African civil engineering standards and all the equipment has been designed specifically for this activity. The duration of the activity is around 2 ½ hours.

The Tree-Top Challenge is an elevated obstacle course or high ropes course, made up of interconnecting poles and trees that support various obstacles or elements between them. All these interconnecting poles and trees form a giant “jungle gym” suitable for both young and old (adult) kids. Ideal family adventure.

The course is the first of its kind in South Africa and is built to European Rope Course Standards, and has the latest continuous belay safety system imported from Switzerland. The course itself is made up of 18 challenging elements and is suitable for people of all ages who are up for the challenge from 1.3 m tall with a maximum weight restriction of 120kg. The course is situated in a private natural forest reserve along one of the main tributaries of the Sabie River. Guests are collected at Gecko lodge and then transported to the forest by vehicle. The duration of the activity is around 1 ½ hours.
