Me Tarzan You look knackered after climbing that tree
Go Ape Activity
Someone going ape at Go Ape!

Tarzan. I personally have never woken up and thought "I really want to start hanging and swinging from trees like the ape man." But I have to admit that whilst I haven't completely changed my mind, going to Go Ape has made me feel that once in a while, a bit of tree climbing is no bad thing. It was a while ago that I went, but I still look back upon my trip with fond memories.

Go Ape! is a company that has various locations in forest all across the United Kingdom. They provide the chance for you to release your inner primate and have an adventure in the forest. Treetop activities are their speciality so it's not advised if you don't have a head for heights. You can zipwire from tree to tree (hopefully not getting stuck like Boris Johnson earlier today in Victoria Park) and take on a forest obstacle course. Some locations offer different activities that really would be ones to remember. They include; the Go Ape forest segway course and the Go Ape forest biking course. They take on all abilities and bravery levels so there's no excuse for not having a go at everything.

As mentioned earlier, there are a wide variety of locations you can go to go ape. They include Trent Park in London and Woburn Safari Park in Bedfordshire. The prices for a two to three hour session is 30 for Gorillas (18 year old) and 20 for Baboons (10-17 year old's who are 1.4 meters or above.)

It really is a fun day out and as the company will provide for groups of almost any size, so you can take all of the family. On second thoughts, maybe that's not such a good point to make...
But on a serious note, you've just gotta give it a go.
