My wife and I escorted our children (7,5, and 3) to Acrobranch. We had always heard about the South African passion for outdoor activities and decided to test out one of the offerings.

After several days of sightseeing and safaris, two boys (6 and 8 years old) just wanted a break. This was a perfect place for them to play and "be boys". The 6 yr old was able to go on the green course, which both boys found challenging and entertaining. The 8 yr old was tall enough for the blue course,... More

We had a kids birthday party here. It was very good and a great physical activity. Numbers are limited per station, however, so sometimes they have to queue.

I cannot believe that an establishment as well set up and run as acrobranch could have such a pathetic shop on site. We couldn't get cold drinks because nothing was refrigerated and then they Could not give us our change because they don't have any float or change available. So we were forced to buy warm cool drinks then also... More

Management response:

This is unacceptable, our sincerist apologies Famida. We do not however own the tuck shop on the premisis. This is sub contracted out, however we do not like our brand associated with this dismal level of service. We will be addressing this matter with the sub contractor as a matter of urgency. Thank you for bringing this matter to our... More

What a wonderful morning/ afternoon activity. The venue has wires of different heights catering for people with different levels of adrenaline addiction. The staff on duty were truly incredible - some of the children in our party were braver than they thought, and even when some became parallelized by the prospect of a zip line too high for their experience,...

There were different levels of difficulty....our group had people participating from the age of 4 to 70. There were zip lines and some rather strenuous balancing sections. A wonderful and exciting time was had by all our group. My only suggestion would be that helmets be issued for the 200 metre zip line. Some of the heavier participants hit the... More
