Boasting Some of the Finest Scenery in Wales, Go Ape is great if you’re looking for things to do in South Wales. Our very first Welsh tree top adventure, located in the beautiful Margam Country Park, and home to the largest deer herd in Wales. Unforgettable days out in South Wales, close to Swansea and Cardiff. Enjoy some splendid landscapes as you swing through our trees and fly down our zip wires.

Each site features our award winning high ropes, awesome crossings, tunnels, bridges and an epic wind-in-your-face zip wire to finish. Margam Country Park is a stunning neck of the woods, and only a stones throw from Swansea and Cardiff.
