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

Great fun guys to abseil with. All modern & good equipment, really hairy leaning back off the mountain but with crowds watching you can't chicken out! There's a "surprise". After about 15 metres which makes it even more worthwhile! Give the guys your cameras & they will take pics as you go down and will take some of their own... More

So much fun! (and safe) These guys are great! They got the lady in front of us down to the bottom even though she was in fits of tears, but they persuaded her to do it. We were more cocky so they cracked all the jokes with us instead. A great experience! If you go up Table Mountain then you... More

There was a group of 7 of us, one of which was 67 and another who had never abseiled before. The guys who run the event really know their stuff and know how to help the nervous ones. Please note: 1) You do have to walk back up the mountain, so (a) Wear a good pair of shoes / trainers... More

The Abseil Africa team was fun and professional, we never felt like we were in danger. The view was breathtaking and the rush of adrenalin was the highlight of our day. If you're on Table Mountain you HAVE TO DO IT!! And the hike back up is beautiful.

The rush of adrenalin and terror that rushes through your body with that first step over the cliff is quite a feeling. Gaining confidence then to do jumps and enjoy the views while dangling from a rope is certainly a once in a lifetime experience for me. Really friendly and efficient staff, even though I was frightened, I always felt... More
