Zip Line in the Midlands, South Africa.
Between the towering Drakensberg and the sparkling South Coast of KwaZulu Natal lies the bucolic Midlands. It takes an hour or so from Durban to reach this peaceful place of rolling green hills, burbling streams, gracious old country hotels, and picturesque little towns inhabited by artists and artisans.
It’s not all sedate and laidback though. You can get your heart rate up before succumbing to yet another foodie fantasy meal. The Midlands has no shortage of adventure activities and everything from mountain biking to canoeing is catered for. One of the most sought-after activities, ideal for families and groups of friends, is the ziplining adventure in the Karkloof Forest. This tree-to-tree sliding trail takes you deep into a magnificent indigenous mist-belt forest, a unique environment that supports unusual wildlife, and where you’ll see a 20-meter waterfall. This canopy tour is sure to wake everyone up from their dreamy Midlands slumber, injecting a jolt or two of adrenalin as you leap off raised platforms and fly off into the leafy green of the forest.
