Acrobranch Adventure Courses in Johannesburg

There are several courses to meet different levels of ability and age groups. Whether you are looking for a family outing or an adrenaline rush, Acrobranch is the natural place for adventure. Safety is our main priority and you will be given expert training before you embark on your adventure. Acrobranch’s challenging obstacle courses are situated in a beautiful outdoor environment and offer the perfect entertainment that keeps the kids going for hours on end. Kids are informed of the safety regulations by qualified instructors, who are constantly around making sure that the rules are adhered to.

The Acrobranch activities are great for personal growth and development as it challenges the child’s motor skills and develops balance and strength as well as self-confidence. The Acro-twigs course (from 3 to 6 years old) works between 2-3m above the ground. Kids can celebrate their birthday parties at Acrobranch Melrose by challenging their friends to an entertaining experience. Our adult courses are structured for different fitness levels. Kids can also participate in these courses (terms and conditions apply with regards to age restrictions). Our Beginners Course, The Monkey Moves course. gradually increases up to 5m high above the ground. Our moderate course, the Swinging Tarzan, consists of zip lines, bridges, monkey bridges, Tarzan jumps and many other activities to challenge you. Certain obstacles are as high up as 10 meters. Then, for the more daring, why not attempt our High Flying course. Each individual is secured with a harness and the friendly instructors are there to walk you through the process, ensuring your safety at all times. It’s the perfect outdoor activity for school outings, birthdays, bachelor/ettes, and/or team building events.

Our Reviews

                               

Alinafe Ngondo, Acrobranch Johannesburg Park Manager:

If you had told me that I’d one day be the Manager of Acrobranch Melrose four years ago, I wouldn’t have believed it. My growth in this company could be somewhat compared to a caterpillar transitioning into a butterfly. I’ve learned so much about people and the power that our words carry. So much so that I’m even considering being a motivational speaker one day. But jokes aside, this position has really taught me how to dig deep, how to empathize with people and the true meaning of Ubuntu. It has taught me that life can at times be like our obstacle courses. They may be challenging at times but once you get to the zip lines, it makes it all worth it.

And that’s why I’ll always be “HOOKED”
