Gerald Satiyi, Acrobranch Johannesburg Park Manager: “I have been with Acrobranch since the first park opened in Johannesburg in 2010. I have seen the company grow into 5 parks, a variety of obstacles and one great adventure. Working at Acrobranch allows me to meet different people every day and this has made a huge impact on my life.”
