Welcome to the Knysna Ziplines - an adrenaline-filled experience that has you gliding over the treetops and giving you a spectacular view of the surrounding forest and natural landscapes, zipline on multiple cables.
Our Knysna Ziplines have especially been designed and installed to enhance the natural beauty of the Kranshoek Sanparks picnic site. The ziplines are some of the longest you will experience and certainly not for someone with a fear of heights. Extremely long cables crisscross the gorge at the picnic site and with heights of over 200 meters, ensuring it will be a memorable experience
All participants and spectators must register at our office before entering the park – Our office is based at Harkerville Forest Lodge. Here you will complete registration and indemnity documents. Essential before you enter the park.
Once completed you can drive into the park with your own vehicle or you can select to drive with one of our vehicles at an additional cost of R150 p.p ( once you make a booking you will have the option to prebook our vehicle) it’s a Sanparks gravel road and normally in a very good condition even for lower vehicles. Please note at the Sanparks gate you will need to pay the Sanparks park fee from R38 per person.
In the park (Kranshoek picnic site) our guides will welcome you and assist you with harnessing and a safety briefing before embarking on the tour – the tour consists of 4 massive "monster" cables and 8 platforms
SPECTATORS – all spectators must stay within the confines of the picnic site and will only be allowed on the sanparks walkways. Spectators are not allowed on the paths created for the ziplines. Strict fines will be issued if not adhering to the parks rules such as staying on the relevant paths.

Wow! What an amazing family adventure. The guides are friendly and professional at all times and adhere to the safety protocols. They are clear in their instructions and we felt safe in their hands, so it wasn't too scary :) The staff at reception are wonderful and go above and beyond to make the experience even more amazing! I would definitely encourage everyone to "hang around" at Knysna Ziplines at least once in their lifetime!
What an amazing experience! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The experience was great! Highly recommended!!
I enjoyed how professional everyone was - from booking right up to the Ziplines. There's four lines/slides that you have the option of doing. Two were enough for me, but the guides were super friendly and reassuring. Issac and Mziyanda went up with us but the entire crew was pleasant to us. Had a good time. Highly recommend:-)
Did the ziplines last week with my girlfriend. Our guides Lucas and Smiley were extremely professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. The ziplines themselves are an unbelievable experience which I couldn’t recommend more - very exciting and the views are spectacular. Definitely the best zipline I have ever done. We honestly could have kept going for hours after we finished. Despite being 200m in the air we felt very safe and secure - you just need to follow the guides instructions and you will be set. Definitely worth every cent.
Just a tip:
After checking in at the reception we had to drive for about 15-20 mins (time will be shortened if you have a raised vehicle) to get to the ziplines on a very rough dirt road. I would highly recommend using an SUV/Bakkie on this road or alternatively you can pay to be dropped off and brought back by the company. I made it there and back in my hatchback but it was very unpleasant and I had to go extremely slowly to avoid damaging my car, so personally I would have paid if I had known the state of the road.
What a fantastic experience! Jacob and Dimitri were patient and fantastic guides. We had a ball of a time.
Awesome experience. 1st time and both Lucas and Smiley were awesome in reassuring me that I was in safe hands.
Great place. The stuff is so friendly and they give you water to refresh after few zips
Turned out to be only 35 minutes long so was a bit of a waste of money as it worked out at R100 a slide. The guides were great but was definitely not worth the money. The setting is awesome but was just disappointed in how few lines there were. No option to do the slides again was given by the guides which was advertised online.
Absolutely stunning time with Smilie and Lucas. Professional experience with clear instructions and safety regulations. Some of the most beautiful views along the way. Stunning ziplines. Give them a try!
