This was one of the most fun things we did during three weeks of travel through South Africa. We hiked up the table with Elvis in half the time it would have taken had we leisurely paced ourselves (he has a great strategy of setting a good place + lying about how much there is to go). The actual abseiling... More

From the second you arrive at the meeting point at the top of the mountain, the staff is lighthearted, putting your worries at ease and happy to answer any questions. A thoroughly professional and enjoyable activity and a definite highlight from my time in South Africa. On a clear day, there are amazing views of the city below and the... More

Nice to "fall" from Table Mountain. The team is cool, and the view is awesome. A bit expensive anyway, but must be done on the Table.

My daughter and I caught a spectacular day on Table Mountain and decided to try the abseiling. The staff was very nice and we found the abseiling very exciting. I suppose if you were a seasoned rock climber this wouldn't get your heart pumping but if not, it's a huge thrill.

we had so much fun doing the abseil it was a thrill and the view was amazing only fault is the fact that there is no pathway back up so its a tough walk back up to the top of the mountain

By her own admission, my gf was petrified when we we got to the top and looking over the edge, but a very happy customer once we'd retuned from the hike back! Staff were calm and professional, and instilled the confidence we needed on our first abseil. Per other reviews, the hike back up is a little scary in itself... More

This was a great experience and we all really enjoyed it, but it would have been far better if we were warned about the walk (it's not really a nice easy path) so we could have taken a bottle of water with us.

OK, first of all, don't book for abseiling because these guys probably won't respect the given time, so if you really want to do it even after reading the rest of my comment, just show up and wait for them to tell you when to go (might take about 15 minutes) Secondly, when they say the whole activity takes 45...

Decide to do this and we did not regret it. The people were awesome and friendly. All went smooth :) and would recommend doing it. If you also have lick with weather then you have a jack pot.

Cheezy the introduction guide was great. The experience for a novice is excellent. This is not truly abseiling due to the fact that you are simply lowered down on a line by the guides for at least a quarter of the way down where the mountain wall cuts away where you dangle until you reach the bottom. A disappointment for... More
