Aerial Cable Trail in Cape Town, South Africa.
Looking for fun thing to do near Cape Town? Imagine following a trail through rugged mountains, except you’re not on foot but whizzing through the air like a raptor. Multiple cables, platforms and walkways form an aerial trail, which is not just about the thrill of the zipline, but also provides a sense of exploration and anticipation as, moving above the landscape, the journey keeps unfolding.
Cape Town’s aerial cable trails are constructed in pristine mountainous nature reserves. The cables cross deep sandstone gorges where mountain pools glint down in the shadowy depths giving you glimpses of secret unseen places. It’s great for the environment because there’s no impact on the precious flora, called fynbos, that grows in this region.
You’ll be accompanied by trained guides who will calm and coax you as you go. Keep an eye out for birds like black eagles and jackal buzzards. Small antelopes can also sometimes be spotted standing like statues on rocky ridges.
