On the 29th of January, after two days of presentation, discussions and planning from the I Can! Operations team we decided that it was time to get some fresh air – and boy did we get more than we bargained for.
Even through almost half the group have a fear of heights everyone very bravely agreed to do a canopy tour at Karloof, just outside Howick. The Karkloof Canopy tour is a unique eco-experience that takes people on a 2 hour adventure through the magnificent Karloof indigenous forest.
It involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30m above the forest floor. Our tour started with a safety briefing followed by a “kitting up” session where harnesses, pulleys and climbing equipment were put on. This was followed by a scenic drive to the top of the Karloff valley where our adventure started.
After some serious monkeying around and gliding on a steel cable from one platform to the next everyone could officially say that they had conquered their fear of heights.
Well done team for your bravery and team spirit! You can be very proud of yourselves.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid but he who conquers that fear.”- Nelson Mandela
