We had a lot of fun, even though it was cold. The guides were really nice and funny. Since our group was really small, the canyoning tour was about 1-2 hours instead of 4. highly recommend it

We had the BEST day today at Africayon. You get to jump off cliffs, abseil down waterfalls and zip line through the valley. It is an absolute MUST DO whilst visiting and if you can, ask for tour guides Nick and Puna. They were brilliant and made our day as exciting and fun as it was!
Thank you!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ we will be back!
