Do you have a head for heights?

The Zarafa Heights SkyTrek is a joint venture operation with Excel Adventure, locally based specialists in High Ropes Adventure Courses.


SkyTrek, located within the zoo next to the Giraffe House and Zarafa Heights Walkway, consists of a number of high level elements which will challenge the bravest of visitors from high wires, tricky crossings and finish with a great wind-in-your-face zip wire. Ideal for those in search of their inner Tarzan.
