Commended Attraction at Swansea Bay Awards 2014

Boasting some of the finest scenery in Wales, Go Ape is a great option 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. It’s a day out like no other in South Wales, close to both Swansea and Cardiff. You’ll enjoy some splendid landscapes as you swing through the trees and fly down our zip wires.

Go Ape Tree Top Adventure involves fun and adventure across five sites. Each site features our award-winning high ropes, crossings, tunnels, bridges and epic wind-in-your-face zip wires to finish.

Margam Country Park is simply stunning.

Rated 5 Bananas Kelly - Tree Top Adventure, on 23 November 2015
As a group we all had a fabulous time and would highly recommend! the only disappointment was one of the course was shut on the day we attended (which couldn't be helped). other than that the staff where helpful and made it enjoyable and encouraged some of the group who where a bit uneasy on certain parts! best bits where defiantly the zip wires! will be booking again!!
Rated 4 Bananas David - Tree Top Adventure, on 22 November 2015
We did enjoy the thrill of the climbs and zip wires. On a particularly cold day the initial safety talk although we appreciated was necessary, because of our numbers took longer for people to get through. Once on the course we had a great time. One of the sites was closed (we received a 20% discount - which was appreciated) so the overall experience was marginally less a wow factor than we had hoped for. Notwithstanding this the Go Ape team were great.
Rated 5 Bananas Sascha - Tree Top Adventure, on 17 November 2015
I really enjoyed the tree top adventure. There were only 2 other people in that time slot which was good as it meant we could go round at a good pace without too much waiting around for each section (as it was pouring with rain). I really liked the tarzan swings- they were scary but super fun! Apart from getting completely soaked through it was an excellent adventure and I will definitely Go Ape again.
Rated 5 Bananas Susan - Tree Top Adventure, on 15 November 2015

Rated 4 Bananas ELLEN - Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior, on 30 October 2015
