MOSSEL BAY ZIPLINE - THE WORLD'S LONGEST OCEAN ZIPLINE
Mossel bay, a small coastal town situated on the world-famous Garden Route, is now home to the longest over ocean zipline.
The Mossel Bay Zipline is latest addition to the already impressive list of ziplines available in the garden route and the Western Cape.

The entire course measures a whopping 1100 meters and offers incredible views over the cliffs, nearby beaches, and surrounding villages.

Once adventurers have arrived at the meeting point, they will receive a safety briefing and kitted up with all the necessary safety gear and will then be taken to the starting platform located on top of the cliffs, about 90 meters above sea level. Here they will get to watch like minded travellers take a leap of faith for a once in a lifetime experience. Adventurers can expect speeds of up to 80 km per hour as the glide over the waves below and take in a bird’s eye view of their surroundings, making it the perfect activity for adrenaline junkies and families alike. Once finished, sit back, and enjoy a well-deserved refreshment and watch other zipliners finish their tour.
We suggest making the most of your time in the area and exploring local attractions such as Cape St Blaize light house and the adjacent hiking trail. The Light house was commissioned in the mid 1800’s and the foundations were laid in 1862. The light house towers and impressive 20.5 meters above the ground and like the Mossel bay Zipline, offer incredible views. Visitors can climb the steps to the top of the lighthouse between April and October. During this time, the light house is open daily between 10h00 and 15h00. For the rest of the year, viewing is available by arrangement only. You can read more about the light house HERE
The hiking trail is a 13.5km trail that hugs the cliffs and offers similarly spectacular views. The trail starts where the Mossel bay zipline ends and finishes in Dana Bay. We suggest making using two vehicles and leaving one at the finish point. Hikers / trail runners are advised not to underestimate the trail and to plan accordingly. Alternatively, it makes for a quick little out and back walk just to experience the majestic views before returning to the starting point. More information is available HERE
