At least in late May that is! I spoke with the folks from abseil Africa many many times prior to our trip in late may and into kid June. Communication was excellent. Leo, I so wish we could have met. I loved the banter back an forth. I am a complete noob when it comes to abseil. With wife has... More

We had had a beautiful day on table mountain, so we took advantage and abseiled! The crew was very funny and concerned for your safety. They were very patient and helped encourage you if you were scared. The experience itself was scary and exhilarating! You have to do it if you get a chance. They only operate when the weather...

If you are going to Table Mountain for the first time this is a must due. please book in advance and this activity is very dependent on weather conditions. I had to reschedule 3 times before i went due to weather conditions. Keep in mind there will be a 45 min hike up, be hydrated for it and make sure... More

An amazing experience, not to be missed Staff where excellent , fantastic views I'd suggest doing just before 12, to avoid having to do the 30 min trek back up to the top in the heat . This also leaves plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the table top

We booked our abseil through Gavin Pfister at Extreme Scene who I'd highly recommend. The trip was a present for my husband for his 30th birthday from family so we booked fairly early into our trip. We were not disappointed. My husband had abseiled before I had not. I was totally petrified literally crying at the top for fear of... More

I really enjoyed it, was a great thrill, but I found it too expensive. It's great, but lasts only about 5 minutes.

We did this with our 10 & 12 yr old kids who were brilliant. It is very scary at the top but well worth the adrenalin rush. The views are stunning just try not to look down too much. I had read lots of reviews about the walk back up being worse than the abseil, not true! The walk back... More

We were five guys who went with Abseil Africa - we had a really good time. We took the cable car up and down (the option to hike up was dismissed because of a hike the previous day). But we still got a very nice 30 min hike up after the abseil!

We booked the package of Abseiling and Hiking up Table Mountain and can highly recommend it, the reward of finally making it to the top and then to go down in the most thrilling way is priceless! Meeting will be at their office on Long Street in the center of Cape Town, for us it was approx 5-10 minute drive... More

I would highly recommend this! The staff are so lovely, its very safe and an awesome experience. Its a great to view table mountain from a different perspective other than just going up by cable car walking around and going back down again. The walk back from the abseil is as impressive as the actual abseil and takes about 45... More
