The Western Cape is getting ready to launch a brand new zipline, in the Overberg region outside Caledon.
The “K3” will bear the title as the world’s longest zipline once complete.
It will be will be just over 3 km in length and an estimated 500 meters from the ground at its highest point.
Western Cape Minister of Tourism, David Maynier, said the K3 will be yet another world-class and unique tourism experience in the Western Cape.

“It’s another world-class tourism product and experience in the form of the world’s longest zipline in the Southern hemisphere. 3.5kms long and I think it’s going to go a long way to boost the tourism and hospitality sector and contribute ultimately to the recovery of tourism and hospitality in the Western Cape,” Maynier said.
The project is due to be completed this summer.
