The "Boomslang" is a tree canopy walkway up in the tree tops where you can experience the trees like the birds do. Enjoy spectacular views of the mountains and the Gardens, and over the Cape Flats to the mountains beyond.
The raised tree canopy walkway winds and dips its way through and over the trees. It is a steel and timber structure, 130m long. It is 11.5m at its highest point, yet it starts at ground level and has a very gentle gradient thoughout its crescent shape.
Inspired by a snake skeleton, and informally called 'The Boomslang' (meaning tree snake), it is a low-maintenance, low-impact sculptural raised walkway.
