The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rain forest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment. Construction of the Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour© has been done in accordance with strict civil engineering standards.
