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.

Gift off my daughter and I am scared of heights! Safety briefing was excellent with the very patient helpful Maddy. I wanted to stop at the first zone but encouraged to continue, so glad I did. Completed the course, fabulous experience. Thanks Go Ape, highly recommend.

I'd bought this experience as a Christmas present for my partner and managed to finally visit yesterday. He's very much into his outdoor experiences whereas I'm a newbie. Although i was new to this the staff were very patient and kind. Also very happy and positive attitudes. The training was very thorough and they made sure you understood how to... More

This was a day out with my two teenage kids. My son isn't a huge fan of heights, but the instruction and staged approach got him over that. We all loved it. Recommended!

Absolutely loved go ape. Not the fittest of people but was encouraged by the staff in a really supportive and friendly way. Safety briefing was thorough but not mind blowing with information Even had to be rescued on one obstacle and the member of staff made me feel very comfortable and not at all embarrassed. Perfect day out for good... More

Booked for a mates birthday and decided I would recommend as a fab couple of hours out.. if you have a fear of heights back away slowly the rope ladders will soon put you off although the zip wire down was pretty cool the staff are lovely and there to help

Having done a couple go ape before, this on for sure is the scariest! Purely due to the fact that the trees are stick thin and if it's windy they do swing! An amazing layout and just great fun for all ages and sizes! If you want to seek an inexpensive thrill, definitely give it a go!

The training provided by staff & very throughou and they ensure you are confident with the equipment before proceeding and stress the importance of double checking your attachment clips. With sometimes as much as four lines of attachment it sounds a little... More

I went with my partner and 13 year old son on 1st October. It was a cold wet miserable day but we all had a good time. It was about a 10 minute walk from parking to go ape, that could be because of maintenance in the park grounds, not an issue and if you're taking part in the activity... More
