This Canopy Walkway Lets You Walk Above The Trees In Cape Town

Sure, you could take a regular walk in the woods, but why would you do that when you could walk ABOVE the trees? The Kirstenbosch Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway in Cape Town is a raised walkway that lets visitors see the forest and the trees the way a bird or a monkey might.

The canopy gracefully snakes its way along the treetops in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in South Africa. The walkway reaches a maximum height of 12 meters from the ground and only touches the ground twice. It has several observation points from which visitors can enjoy the surrounding view, but it also descends among the tree canopy in a few places so that they can enjoy the foliage as well.

The 427 ft walkway is open and involves no additional charge, so if you’re ever in South Africa, you should definitely consider paying the park a visit!
