Safari® Plank Walk
Cross the Safari® Plank Walk using the hanging guide ropes. It’s fun and it helps develop upper body, core strength, balance and coordination. This unique add-on offers a “low ropes” type challenge to your gym, rec center, or activity space. It’s great for after-school programs, camps, recreation centers and inclement weather situations.
WALK THE PLANK – Safari® Plank Walk!
The Safari® Plank Walk is wall mounted and can stand alone or can be combined with other Safari elements to maximize fitness opportunities with minimal space requirements. Mounting brackets and Mat-Locking® System help stow and lock components to prevent unauthorized use. Can be mounted to concrete block or poured concrete walls only. Complete package includes a Mat-Locking® System, mounting brackets, hardware, installation instructions, safety sign and activity guide.
Safari® Plank Walk Activity Guide comes with 5 creative and physical activities to try on the Plank Walk including “Walk the Plank!”, “A Trio of Bean Bag Challenges” and “Team Bean Bag Challenge.” Activities include step-by-step instructions and modifications to accommodate learner differences.
For added fun, combine the Safari® Indoor Jungle Gym Elements with a Traverse Wall®.
NOTE: For safety purposes, we recommend the elements be used only under supervision.

How does the system store?
Using the provided tool, you push up on the element so that it swings and locks against the wall. If you purchase our Mat-Locking System, then you have the added feature of folding up the mats against the Plank Walk and locking access to it.
What kind of safety surfacing do you recommend?
We recommend safety surfacing to cover and 8' drop zone. We follow playground guidelines of a 6' fall zone and the elements extend 2' out from the wall, which totals an 8' area. 8' Mats, a 6' mat with a 2' extension, can be purchased with the Safari element. The mats are then used to stow and lock the element.
How many people can use each piece at a time?
We recommend one user per element.
What type of wall does this mount to?
This must attach to a CMU or Concrete Block wall.
Is this playground equipment?
This is not playground equipment and should be used only under supervision. The elements should be locked and stowed when not in use and under supervision.
Can Safari elements be used in conjunction with a Traverse Wall?
Yes, Safari elements are a great addition to an existing or new Traverse Wall. The Monkey Bars can be placed above the climbing wall since it does not block access to the wall. Other elements should be mounted to either side of the Traverse Wall to extend physical activity options before and after the climb.
What is the weight limit?
The weight limit for each Safari Jungle Gym element is 350 pounds.
