If you can overcome your fears about this I definitely recommend it. We couldn't squeeze into a hike and abseil so we just did the abseil. Great views. Guides were good enough. They also took pictures as well. If you've got a go pro bring it as some helmets have mounts for the camera. The hike back up is about... More

We did the hike and abseil. We'd fully recommend doing the hike first as it's the best way to take in the views. There also tends to be a long queue for the cable car. The team that took us up there were good fun and put the group at ease when it came to the abseil part. They photograph... More

I did an abseil with them on a May sunny afternoon. After hiking up the Table Mountain through the Platteklip Route, I was exhausted and chilling at the cafe. Then I saw the Abseil Africa sign at the side and my wheels in the brain started turning. It was my last day in my month long South Africa trip so... More

Abseil Africa was awesome. If you're in Cape Town 1) Go to the top of Table Mountain ASAP. You won't be disappointed. The weather can be unpredictable, so go to the top the first chance you get. Cableway is weather dependent. 2) At the top of Table Mountain, go directly to Abseil Africa and go abseiling. Abseiling is weather dependent,... More

Two of us did the abseil from table mountain. It was my first table mountain visit but my partners 3rd so wanted to try something different. All of the team were great - friendly, informative, good humoured. Thanks to Chris for getting us started, and thanks to Gee for holding on to our iPhone and photographing our abseil as we... More

We did the hike and abseil combo in mid November and it was fantastic! Although we had to rearrange once because of the weather, it was worth the wait - and the early start. The hike was fairly steep but we made it up in about an hour and a half with a few stops on the way. Before the... More

I was fortunate that the sun was shining and there was no table cloth in sight, so my adventure with abseil africa could go ahead! I had booked this in advance and although there were a few hiccups with paying in advance for this activity, there wasn't an easy option of paying via credit card so i had to send... More

Did the Table Mountain hike and abseil combo. We were provided with transport from the centre of Cape Town to the base of the hike near the lower cable car station. Our guide was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna on the mountain, thus providing interesting background commentary for the 1hr45min climb. It was non-technical but physically challenging in the... More

I abseiled down Table Mountain with my boyfriend and Dad in March this year. It was one of the best experiences of my life! I had no prior experience and had not done any extreme sports before but it was amazing! The Abseil Africa staff were very helpful, explaining everything in detail before the abseil down. They were also hilarious,... More
