The very first high-ropes course to cross the border into Wales. You'll find Go Ape in the grounds of beautiful Margam Country Park - a 1,000 acre parkland. The park and castle are neatly off Junction 38 of the M4. Just 40 minutes away from Cardiff, it's a cracking day out. In addition to tree-top crossings and super-fast ziplines,
Margam boasts Go Ape's biggest Tarzan swing. A stomach-wrenching leap of faith with a drop of six metres. If you're looking for one of the best outdoor attractions in South Wales for all the family, look no further.
