Chimp & Zee Rope Adventure
uShaka’s ultra-thrilling adventure park, with rope bridges, obstacle courses, climbing nets and zip lines, is suitable for all ages.
The uShaka Chimp & Zee Rope Adventure Course consists of a series of rope bridges, obstacle courses, climbing nets, zip lines and crossings, and is suitable for all ages – although children need to be a minimum height of 1.2m to participate.
It starts from Village Walk and travels over the scenic Sea World and uShaka’s ‘phantom ship’ – the elevated nature of the attraction allows for beautiful views over Durban’s Golden Mile and Point Waterfront.
The facility features two courses, one for children and the less-adventurous, and the second for thrill-seekers; it is estimated that the two courses together will take an average time of 45 minutes to complete.
They form a rough figure-eight, allowing adventurers to continue straight onto the second course after the introductory course, if they wish. The beginner course comprises 18 elements, including two short zip-lines over the rocky reef and turtle enclosure tanks. The intermediate course contains 17 elements that are a little more challenging, ending with a double zip-line off the top deck of the ship and over the snorkel lagoon to the end point, back at Village Walk.
The courses are 100% safe, with a continuous clip-on-and-go harness system attached to a safety cable. Trained guides instruct participants on the correct use of the equipment, and monitor and assist participants.
The attraction is open between 09h00 to 17h00 on select days, daily in peak season.
