What better to say than I've abseiled down one of the 7 New Wonders of the World! Standing at the top of table mountain on sunny clear day was amazing and then abseiling off of it is definitely something I recommend to anyone - one of the best things I have done in Cape Town. There should be no reason... More

This site is extremely. You do not have to fight for good spo to view or take pictures because the cable car is 360 degrees revolving as you ascend to the mountain

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
