we were initially worried that the standard would not be professional but we found the guides, equipment and facilities to be world class. easily on a par with similar facilities we have used in Italy. thoroughly recommended.

The staff are great (with a cheeky sense of humour!) and manage to mix an eye for fun with safety as well as telling you something about the habitat and local area. Amazing to fly over the tree canopy at up to 80km/hour!

I loved every minute, from the friendly and professional staff to the beautiful forests and the welcoming and refreshing refreshments afterwards. Be prepared for the steep walk back up to the vehicles.

It's about 10-15 minutes. About 500m of canopy meandering. Uphill steep walk. no climbing. Still have the gear on but it is doable. Then vehicle brings you back to base
