Cape Town Ziplines reopens

Cape Town Ziplines, an SA Forest Adventures initiative, reopened on Monday, July 2. The zipline is 2.3km long and located in Silvermist Estate on the Hout Bay Road.

The zipline tour, one of the longest and highest in Africa, begins with a 4×4 trail up the mountain, offering guests views of Table Mountain, the Constantia Winelands and out towards Muizenberg. The cables range from 190 metres to just under 500 metres, with the tour lasting around two hours. It is easily accessible from all major transport routes, including the Hop-on, Hop-off City Sightseeing Bus.

SIlvermist Estate also boasts a restaurant, conference facilities and other team-building options.

Attending the opening, Provincial Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, said: “Tourism has long been identified as a key driver of the Western Cape’s economy and forms part of our economic growth strategy. This zipline, as an addition to our many tourist attractions, will not only expose visitors to this area’s natural beauty and distinctly South African topography, but will also offer a unique experience to our visitors, unlike anything they may have experienced elsewhere.”

Judy Lain, Chief Marketing Officer at Wesgro, also commented on the zipline’s potential to create employment. “Hiring staff from the community, the zipline has created much-needed permanent employment in the area.”
