I'm a thrill seeker and I've never done anything quite like this so I had to sign up. The views are absolutely amazing and the experience is fun and exhilarating. The staff was friendly, helpful and funny. Would definitely do it again!

Abseiling from Table Mountain in and of itself is a very cool experience. The views are beautiful and for those who have never abseiled before it's a fun rush trusting ropes and hanging yourself off a mountain. Getting to the top of Table Mountain in peak season is a bad experience. The line for the cable car is unorganized and... More

Took my friend from England to Cape Town. Had booking for abseil, arrived a couple of hours early and realised it was too windy. Contacted the company by text message who replied instantly to confirm our fears of cancellation. We were given option to rebook which we did for the next week, this time we received a message before we... More

Booked for 13h00 abseil off Table Mountain. After the initial 1h30 queue to get up the mountain, which we were expecting, we waited an additional 2 hours to abseil. We went down the mountain just after 15h00. Furthermore, by the staff members own addition he wasn't paying attention causing my ropes to tangle and me getting stuck for 15 minutes.... More

Did the hike & abseil combo. Well organised from go to whoa !! I've done a bit of abseil training and I was impressed by the set up at the top and the obvious focus on safety. They took photos of me with my camera and providing a helmet with a GoPro clip so I could film my descent. Just... More

This is abseiling with a difference. Kevin was a very friendly host explaining everything in detail in a way that makes you look forward to it. The walk back to the top is part of the experience, a most amazing walk to see Table Mountain in a different way. A definite must on your visit to Cape Town!

Great fun. The staff is excellent and make you feel comfortable right off the bat. They take the time to explain all the safety and backup safety mechanisms in place before you go. They even take pictures for you and will look after your stuff until you get back. Maybe a read it wrong, but the hike back to the... More

This was great. The staff are so calm and relax that you don't have time to worry about the experience. The jokes they made kept everyone calm and was not out of line. The wait was just too long for the small group we were but that won't stop me from doing it again. I really loved this outing and... More

Booked through another company but these are the guys who take you down. Lots of banter & laughter, a good safety brief & testing of equipment & I was off down to the ledge. It's a bit of a scramble although you're roped on at all times which I didn't feel was necessary. If you're of a nervous disposition you... More

My partner and I did Kamikaze Kanyon with Abseil Africa. We lucked out being the only two on the trip that day due to cancellations. The swimming pools and jump rocks were fantastic. The 65m abseil down a waterfall was slightly terrifying but exhilarating. Best of all were our two amazing guides Chizzy and Willy who always made sure we... More
