This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cape Town. The trill of going down a 112 meter mountain with a rope by itself is enough to make you scream and sweat. Once you start the abseil, the view from the table mountain is absolutely breathtaking.

Highly recommend to anyone. The views from the abseil are amazing and the package is very reasonable considering they also take photos for you and you can get photos off there Facebook page at no extra cost. One of the best things I did in Cape Town

We went for the hike and abseil tour. The hike was really nice and fun but very tiring; however, I recommend that you do the hike on your own since you'd be on your own pace (slow paced people will hold you back since the guide will always hold the pace of the slowest person). The abseil was perfect!!! It... More

Would really recommend doing this if you get the chance. I was quite scared when leaning over the edge but was full of adrenaline when I reached the bottom. The guides are funny and friendly. Our guide for the hike back up was very knowledgeable and thought us a lot about Cape Town and Table Mountain.

A last minute decision to abseil and it was simply amazing! The guide was reassuring, who made you feel absolutely safe and more at ease. There will be a 30mins beautiful hike back up after abseiling down 100m. Highly recommended.

18 year old granddaughter visiting S Africa for first time discovered that she could abseil from top of Table Mountain. I went with her to book it. Very slick, professional service and considering it was a last minute decision she only had to wait half an hour or so.

This was a great way to make our Table Mountain experience even better. We went at 9am. Very efficient crew, helpful and reassuring (we r 1st timers at this sort of thing). They took some great pictures for us. The climb down was thrilling and fun. Amazing views. The walk back up was 30-40 minutes and more of a workout... More

I absolutely loved this experience. The entire team is super friendly, I felt very safe and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience getting that adrenaline rush matched with the most amazing view! Just do it! My husband is afraid of heights and made it down but I would say he didn't enjoy it nearly as much. Ha!... More

It was super fun and guides gave u a quick info on the ropes. Go early bc we went at 1230p and cable car was packed and had to wait in long line. Buy your cable ticket online to save time and go an hour prior to your abseil reservation to make sure your on time. When we finished around... More
