Two of the people in my group decided to give this a try and they enjoyed the view and wished they could do it again, now that they had the hang of it. The equipment looked well maintained and in good order. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. It seemed a bit expensive for me, but not everyone is on... More

Abseiling down table mountain was just the icing on the cake. I climbed up and explored the top for a little before finding abseil africa. It was a blast. Here's what I didn't understand leading up to it. i thought you had to book through the company before you went. You don't! You only do that if you want a... More

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
