Pretoria – Acrobranch
If flying through the trees appeals to you, Acrobranch is for you. They specialise in exciting aerial adventures where zip lines, tarzan swings, nets and bridges take children and adults from tree to tree.
There are several courses to suit various levels of ability and age groups. Children as young as three are welcome on the easiest courses, and from there the courses get steadily higher and more difficult. Each park has its own set of age and course restrictions to make sure no-one goes in for more than they can handle.
Whether you are looking for a family outing or an adrenaline rush, Acrobranch is the natural place for adventure.
