Below are some of the activities in or close to Hazyview
Experience the freedom of gliding over one of the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River adjacent to the Kruger National Park. The aerial cable trail takes you down into the valley basin, stopping along the way on a number of elevated platforms to admire the natural vegetation, birdlife and the views of the forest floor below.
Each section of the trail varies in length from 70 to 230 m linking a total of 10 platforms, making the total length of the trail 1.2km. The trail has been designed and built to South African civil engineering standards and all the equipment has been designed specifically for this activity.
The Tree-Top Challenge is an elevated obstacle course or high ropes course, made up of interconnecting poles or trees that support various obstacles or elements between them. All these interconnecting poles and trees form a giant “jungle gym” suitable for both young and old (adult) kids.
The course is the first of its kind in South Africa and is built to European Rope Course Standards, and has the latest continuous belay safety system imported from Switzerland. The course itself is made up of 19 exciting elements from balancing beams, rope bridges, spider’s webs and much more all ending on our 50m zip line. It’s suitable for people of all ages who are up for the challenge.
The Sabie River provides 20 rapids (grade 2–3) with areas of lush vegetation. Using two-man inflatable rafts, this 8 km route accommodates the novice, yet satisfies the thrill seeker within all of us.
Negotiating the rapids is not the only attraction, as adventurers are bound to see an abundance of bird life, lush indigenous forest scenes and will have the chance to “bum slide” down rocks at the picnic stop. Life jackets, rafts and helmets are provided.
Geckoing or White Water Tubing is one of the most popular adventure activities in the area. This unique adventure offers you the chance to descend the Sabie River Gorge with a “Gecko”. A Gecko is a white-water tube, oval shaped and has a floor preventing you from bumping your bottom on rock and logs. Rapids are Class 2 (Grade 2) rapids and half way down the river you get the chance to jump off an 8 m waterfall. This is an easy, fun and safe adventure with trained river guides. Life jackets, tubes and helmets are provided.
The Viewing Lift - The viewing lift takes visitors 51m down the face of the gorge into the indigenous forest below, where wooden walkways & suspension bridges make up a 600m trail. Interactive exhibits and interpretation boards enable visitors to explore the diverse life that thrives under the dense canopy of trees. Enjoy the waterfall and meandering stream.
The Big Swing - The Big Swing is one of the world’s highest cable gorge swings and launches off the top of a waterfall. The experience is very different to a bungee-jump because participants freefall for 70m before the jump rope pulls them into a high-speed arch and they swing from one side of the gorge to the other. When falling, they reach 140km/h in three seconds
Zipline - Visitors to the centre who still want to get their hearts racing but who think the Big Swing is too extreme for them, can choose to fly across the gorge on a high-wire Zipline. The course starts from the top of a 5m tower, with 360° views. Participants ride a 120m-long zipline to the northern side of the gorge before walking a short distance along a scenic platform and zipping back along a second zipline of equal length.
