Your Adventure in Margam Country Park

Our one and only Welsh adventure, Margam boasts the UK’s biggest Tarzan swing. Psych yourself up for a huge leap of faith, and step off into a stomach-wrenching drop of six metres. That's part one...next up is the cargo net. Challenge your friends and family and see who can reach the top first!

 

Add to that over 1,000 acres of parkland to explore, the largest herd of deer in Wales, and spectacular sea views, and you’ve got an unrivalled aerial adventure.

 

Tree Top Adventure

Outdoor adventure in Wales doesn't get better than this. With tree-to-tree crossings hidden up high in the canopy you'll tackle cunning obstacles designed to test your nerves and balance - all taking around two-to-three hours to complete. The course is over 700 metres long and features our infamous Tarzan swing and wind-in-your-face zip wires. Assemble your Tribe and let yourself loose for hours of laughter.
