WHAT IS ACROBRANCH?
Acrobranch is a Treetop aerial obstacle experience dedicated to offering children and adults a unique adventure as they move from tree to tree in lush, green forests. There are Acrobranch Courses for Children and for Adults offered at all of our Acrobranch Centres in eight locations in South Africa: Johannesburg (Melrose & Huddle Park); Centurion (The Big Red Barn), Pretoria North, Pretoria East (Rosemary Hill), Cape Town (Constantia & Stellenbosch) and The Garden Route (Wilderness)
Each course is carefully designed with a variety of obstacles including zip lines, tarzan swings, nets, bridges and many more activities which gradually takes you from tree to tree.
WHAT IS AN ACROBRANCH EXPERIENCE LIKE?
You’ll arrive at one of our seven parks to smiling faces from our Acrobranch tribe. You will be asked to complete the indemnity form. On completion, your dedicated instructor will fit you for a harness (which keeps you locked onto a zip line throughout your tree top adventure. Once you have been fully kitted out you will have a thorough training session that will let you know how to move through the trees on your harness. Then you will set off on a guided tour of zip lines, Tarzan swings, nets, bridges and many more activities making for a memorable adventure.
Each Acrobranch session last 2 hours, and includes training and harnessing, which allows for ample time between the trees.
HOW DOES ACROBRANCH CATER FOR VARIOUS AGE GROUPS?
At Acrobranch you choose from various courses with different levels of difficulty. The height of the challenges, distance between steps and level of difficulty required has been carefully measured. Each park has different age and course restrictions depending on the forest terrain, so please check out the park nearest to you.
Whatever Acrobranch Centre you choose, each offers a range of courses designed to ensure that no one takes on more than they can comfortably handle. You can either experience your adventure solo, or tackle it with family and friends, you are not limited to group sizes.
How do I book an adventure?
We have a dedicated bookings office that can be emailed on firstname.lastname@example.org, or called on 086 999 0369, alternatively, complete our online form.
Do I have to Make a booking?
We gladly accept walk-ins; however booking is recommended to ensure availability.
IS THE TREE TOP ADVENTURE SAFE?
YES – Here’s how we ensure it stays that way: In climbing, the most important piece of equipment is a ‘carabiner’, a metal loop which connects the harness to the rope. We believe that the safest way of using the carabiner is to let adventurers handle their own carabiners.
Experience has shown us that with thorough training this leads to the safest tree top journey, even with young children. If this sounds a bit wild, don’t worry, our friendly guides will always be around to remind you about the safety rules and ensure you stay safe during your fun outdoor adventure.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY OUTDOOR ADVENTURE?
- Tip 1: please wear closed shoes with good tread.
- Tip 2. Dress in clothes you can move freely in (touch your toes, stretch for a tree a little out of reach, sit comfortably).
- Tip 3. People with long hair should tie up their hair so it’s out of the way of pesky tree branches that may want to snag onto it.
DO I NEED GLOVES TO TAKE PART IN THE ACTIVITY?
It is up to you. While Acrobranch does provide adventurers with gloves, many adventurers prefer to climb without gloves as their grip is better.
IS THERE A MINIMUM PARTICIPATION?
Not at all – Acrobranch offers adventure for all, be a solo adventurer or a group outing.
