Need to Know
Must we book in advance?
We strongly recommend that you book in advance, especially in holiday times. You are however more than welcome to arrive without a booking and we will do our best to accommodate you. Please note every so often we may be closed to the public because of private events or maintenance work. As such, it is a good idea to call ahead.
When are you open?
Out of holidays we are open Tuesday to Sunday, 9am – 4pm; closed Mondays.
During school holidays, we are open every day of the week, 9am – 4pm.
What happens if it rains or the weather is bad?
In extreme weather conditions (heavy rain, strong winds and thunderstorm activity) we reserve the right to suspend operations in the interest of client safety. Please always call ahead to check.
If you have pre-booked with us and the weather turns on the day of your booking, we will contact you to cancel or postpone your booking. Please note, the weather in Port Elizabeth (PE) is often very different from the weather in Addo; while wind and rain take hold in PE, the sun is often shinning in Addo!
Is it safe?
Designed and built by qualified civil engineers our zip line has been built to international standards. Our zip line is equipped with the world’s leading braking system, backed-up with a secondary braking system, and as such it complies with US and international zip lining regulations. Our automated braking technology also means that riders do not have to stop themselves, thus eliminating rider risk. Finally, our qualified and experienced guides make it their priority to put client safety first and foremost.
Weight and height restrictions
Our zip line has been engineered to hold several tonnes of weight. Nevertheless, we need to enforce a strict weight limit due to the high speed generated while sliding on our zip line. Your safety is our overriding priority and therefore we do not make any exceptions for anyone weighing above our maximum weight limits: Zip line: 20 -120 kg / Giant swing: 20 - 130 kg / Superman zip line: Maximum weight 110 kg and minimum height 1.5 m
Please note we do reserve the right to adjust the weight limits in the event of certain weather conditions such as strong head winds.
The zip line is suitable for all ages, providing the weight restrictions are respected. Please note that anyone under the age of 18 years wanting to do our activities must have a parent or guardian to sign an indemnity form for them.
We regret that zip lining when pregnant is not permitted in the interest of safety.
Zip lining is an adventure activity and we recommend a reasonable level of fitness. Our zip line experience requires a 480 metre mountain hike to the departure platform.
How long does it take?
Allow approximately one hour for the zip line experience. This includes completing the paperwork, getting kitted-up, a short walk to the launch tower, and, the best bit of all – zip lining! Please note in peak holiday times and on weekends you may have to wait in turn.
What should we wear and bring?
We recommend outdoor clothes, flat shoes (preferably closed), a hair band to tie up long hair, a hat and sunblock in summer, and your camera!
