Sure, you could take a regular walk in the woods, but why would you do that when walking 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 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 to enjoy the foliage.
The 427 ft walkway is open and involves no additional charge, so if you’re ever in South Africa, you should consider visiting the park!
