Ziplining: Thrills, Spills & Insta-Worthy Views With Lifelong Friends

The teams took their faithful XUV700s just an hour outside the city of Cape Town for another day of exploring active living. This latest #GreatEscape activity took them to the picturesque Elgin Valley, on the slopes of the majestic Hottentot Holland Nature Reserve Mountains, where they get the opportunity to conquer new fears and test their limits at Cape Canopy Tours.

Cape Canopy Tours offers all the thrills, spills & Insta-worthy views that the avid adventurer could ever want. Voted the second hottest new experience in tourism and the best experience in Africa, there is no better way for our teams to #ExploreActiveLiving in such an extraordinarily beautiful place than high above the treetops!

After signing indemnity forms and getting the gear on (safety first), the teams were ready to start their adrenaline-rush adventure. Battling against the infamously nippy Cape winds, they made their way across the course, which consisted of 13 platforms and slides up to 320m long, spanning large valleys and gorges surrounded by breath-taking Cape fynbos panoramas and mountainscapes. Nothing comes close to the adrenaline-filled freedom of zipping through the sky…except the spirited performance of an XUV700. Reaching 0-60 km/h in less than 5 seconds to give you ultimate freedom on the open road while you #ExploreActiveLiving

Li-Mari and Adriaan lead the pack, soaring through the slide along steel cables from platform to platform with ease, while Chantal, Mark, Maserame and Mojaki struggled to keep up. Experiencing some of the highest ziplines in the world can be a daunting task! However, at Cape Canopy Tours, your safety is always a top priority – much like the XUV700 with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), including emergency autonomous braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).

Even with the intimidating heights and moody weather, it was hard not to be green with envy as the team ziplined in the company of eagles, over waterfalls and through valleys, enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer!

By the end of the day, our group of friends had faced fears, crossed lifetime goals off of their bucket lists and fulfilled their yearning to break free and enjoy both nature and adventure. And now, they are guaranteed to remember all the spectacular memories and experiences of today every time they sit in their XUV700!
