Ceres Zip Slides

Ceres Zip Slides offers one of the best zipline tours in South Africa.

Experience 1,4km of pure adrenalin Eco Adventure, consisting of 8 slides varying from 100-290m in length. This Eco-Adventure is safe, fast and long. The tour takes place in the Schurweberg Mountains below the Koekedouw Dam in Ceres.

The Experience

This “foefieslide” adventure is situated in the lovely mountains surrounding the Ceres Valley. A mere 1½ hours’ drive from Cape Town, it is the perfect breakaway from the hectic city life!

You will be kitted up in a full body harness with state of the art equipment and then 2 fully trained guides will take you on the Zipline tour into the mountain. Price includes a drink during and after the tour.

After being kitted up, you will hop on our “Zipslide taxi/bus” and we will transport you a short drive (about 5 km) up into the mountains! On the drive down the main road and through suburban Ceres, you will get a feel for our lovely town before we head up into the mountain.

From the drop off point, a short walk takes you to the departure point at the first slide, from where the breath-taking view reaches over the town of Ceres and across the Ceres Valley. Here the fun starts!

Cherry Picking at Klondyke Farm (Ceres)

PICK-YOUR-OWN CHERRIES!

You pay an entrance fee per person and receive a container – indicating what a 1kg more or less looks like, which you are welcome to fill to the brim with delicious ruby-tinged or sunkissed yellow cherries.

Between picking, take time out to explore the picturesque orchards and, when you’re done, have your container weighed at the farmstall.
Card facilities available.

You will be welcome to come have a picnic – there’s no better way to spend a summer’s day than enjoying the “fruits of your labour” under the cool shade of a pine tree.

It sometimes gets pretty windy on the farm, so remember to bring a warm jersey or windbreaker.

The farm is open every day throughout the season (Nov/Dec each year – varies)
