This must rate as the best zip line in the country. A very high line over the gorge and then a long one over the lake. Really a great day.

A wonderful family outing in a beautiful part of our wonderful country! Not for me - too scared, but the rest of the family loved it. The game viewing on the way was an added bonus.

For my friend's Dirty 30th Birthday we headed down to Mount Eland for the Zip Line experience. Boy was it a wonderful, dirty, crazy experience filled with loads of screams and laughter.
