Valley of the Waves - Johannesburg

Take plenty of sunscreen with you. It can get very hot here in summer (30 - 40 degrees C !), and if you don't have protection against the ultra violet light, you can get terribly burnt after only 1 to 2 hours exposure!

Directions to Valley of the Waves

The Valley of Waves is not just one feature for you to visit! There are many different things to do in this surprising Valley!

It comprises the Roaring Lagoon, the Temple of Courage, the Tarantula, the Scorpion, the Viper, the Mamba, the Lazy River the Royal Bath and The Bridge of Time! What a fascinating prospect!

The Roaring Lagoon is a huge wave pool with tropical palms and a white beach. Waves up to a 1,8 metre (6 feet 8 inches) high are generated every 90 seconds. And in between the wave periods, the water bobs gently as though it was behind a coral reef.

The Temple of Courage is situated high above the level of the waves, where swimmers of great courage can do one of four slides where swimmers drop a heart-stopping 17 meters down a 70-meter chute, hurtle under a bridge and splash into a small pool at the foot of the slide! The Tarantula and The Scorpion are body slides, whilst the The Viper and The Mamba are flume rides where the swimmers float on large inflated tubes.

The Lazy River: This is for those more into relaxing. Here you sit in a large tube on a slow moving river of water that flows round a kidney-shaped island. On the island itself is an local African village with a clothing store, a sweet shop and a fast food outlet. There is also something here for the children: a pool and playground designed specially with the youngsters in mind.

The Royal Bath is a large swimming pool adjacent to an amphitheatre which overlooks the wave pool. Used for various types of events, the amphitheatre can accommodate an audience of over 800 people! On the pool deck the Observatory Bar offers exotic cocktails and is covered by an antique dome.

The Bridge of Timeis the route to and from the Valley of Waves, going via the Entertainment Centre. The bridge erupts every hour in a display of volcanic activity (this has to be seen to be believed!). You then proceed over the bridge, through the magnificent Kong Gates onto the Monkey Spring Plaza.

And it doesn't end there - there are also forests and trails to enjoy! The Botanical Garden Trails go around and through the different forests surrounding the Valley of Waves, a Rain Forest, Baobab Forest, the Jacaranda and the Tropical Forest, all contain rare plant varieties. The Spider Web Bridge (sway bridge), Adventure Paths, Hidden Cave Water Falls and other exciting walkways are in the Garden.
