“ZIPLINE open air fun for 3 to 73 Years of age”

Acrobranch Centurion
Ranked #3 of 28 things to do in Centurion
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 25, 2013

City bound families can escape with their children to unwind in the countryside with healthy physical activity enjoying the ziplines in four categories of age/difficulty and clamberring over the net and drums obstacle courses in totally safe harnesses under the reassuring guidance of a safety officer.
A bit expensive but fee for period long enough to exhaust you and the kids.
There is no concession for children but you can buy 10 rides for R300 which is a discount for families going over several weekends.
Close to Pretoria and you travel there on the M 18 through Irene toward Olifantsfontein where it is located on the Cullinan families Sunlawns Estate which also has a Countryside Cycling and a BMX kiddies track and Redbarn Restaurant which overlooks the Zipline area.
You could miss the turnoff because presently not yet a Sign but you cannot miss the Stone entrance pillars and the huge Red Barn roof within the grounds.
The steel mesh rock filled elephant in front of the Red Barn is symbolic of the districts Olifantsfontein name.
When you arrive check out the Track Map on the wall inside the Red Barn and walk under the differrent grade Ziplines to asess their grade of difficulty.
Ziplines for 3 to 7 year olds and others for 7 to 73 Year olds and enjoyed by all.
And eating facilities available at next door seperate Red Barn restaurant facility are family priced and excellent and overlooks the Ziplines so while eating you can keep watch over your kids.
The estate also at a fee allows cycling over 25 Kiometers of coutryside track and Track Running on the rest of the estate and there is also a kiddies BMX Track and a Pirates Ship for kiddies to play on.
Toilet facilities handy.
Wonderful escape out of the City to activity in the countryside.

My 4yr old had the time of her life. Zip lining and doing some fun activities in between the trees.
Fun for the whole family. They have courses for 3-6yr olds and the bigger kids 7+... and then the next level is 12+They accept card payments and restroom facilities.
Ziplines take up 120kg so even us big kids can play!
My little girl loved it. The staff were wonderful with the kids.
R70 for two hours



Other attractions on the same property:-
There is a little country restaurant at the big Red Barn and they have great jungle gyms for the kiddies too.
There is also bicycle trails..

Acrobranch and the Big Red Barn are two separate companies but operate from the same site between Irene and Centurion. Their booking system operates separately too, so be careful if you book by website.

Acrobranch is zip lining across a stand of bluegum trees. It's very safe (double safety lines) and all children and adults are given an extensive safety briefing. It's worth walking around the site on the ground to get an idea of what you are letting yourself in for. My 8 & 10 year old children love it - and it's great to take new friends to as they all learn so quickly. For adults some of the sections can be tricky, so don't try and keep up with the children.

What I hadn't seen or tried until recently was their mountain biking trail. We're not hard core adrenalin junkies but this is fun. There's basically one long trail (the green trail) with more complicated blue and black trails leading off the green trail. The trail is twisty and winds through bluegum and wattle groves, so it's possible to cycle in shade in the middle of the day when the majority of riders have gone. The trail is just one bike wide in most places which restricts some of the boy racer riders, but there are enough jumps, berms dips and interesting bits to keep everyone happy. You could ride it on a hybrid but there are sections of sand and gravel that might make it difficult for young riders.

The trails are not brilliantly marked and the trail start is outside the car park about 80 m away from the Barn. Just inside the door of the barn (and therefore facing the wrong way) is a map of the trail. With the twisty trail it's easy to get disoriented but a nice touch is good signposting back to the Big Red Barn via a wide farm track in case anything goes wrong, you run out of time or get nervous.

Rides cost R40 per day and there are thorns on the trail, so don't ride it without a puncture repair kit or slime in your tubes. There is no concession for children but you can buy 10 rides for R300 which is a discount for families going over several weekends.

The Red Barn provides food and drink over from lunchtime on Friday and overweekends and is a pleasant venue for children s parties.

I personally cannot comment, however I took my 10 year old son to Acrobranch for one of his friends parties, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. It was not too difficult to find, albeit slightly out out of the way.
It might be a bit hot in summer so make sure that you take plenty of fluids with you as i did not see anywhere to buy any drinks or food (I could be wrong though)
