What is a Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course?
Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is an outdoor experience that provides participants 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise. The result is spectacular. The course allows participants to explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while navigating through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles and tarzan swings. We start by equiping participants with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to fly on zip lines, swing through the trees, and observe the surroundings. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests. The course gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all, it’s a great outdoor activity.

Hope you can join us on another adventure to test your fear of heights! I am determined to either scare myself to death or learn to have a "normal" fear of heights! So Come, Come; we'll have Fun, Fun!

Yet a prevailing theory still maintains bipedalism evolved after our ancestors left the trees and began living in the African grasslands.Photograph courtesy SKS Thorpe, NatGeo See More
