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

I was fortunate that the sun was shining and there was no table cloth in sight, so my adventure with abseil africa could go ahead! I had booked this in advance and although there were a few hiccups with paying in advance for this activity, there wasn't an easy option of paying via credit card so i had to send... More

Did the Table Mountain hike and abseil combo. We were provided with transport from the centre of Cape Town to the base of the hike near the lower cable car station. Our guide was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna on the mountain, thus providing interesting background commentary for the 1hr45min climb. It was non-technical but physically challenging in the... More

I abseiled down Table Mountain with my boyfriend and Dad in March this year. It was one of the best experiences of my life! I had no prior experience and had not done any extreme sports before but it was amazing! The Abseil Africa staff were very helpful, explaining everything in detail before the abseil down. They were also hilarious,... More

I can't believe it took me so long to go abseiling off Table Mountain. It was amazing! Going up Table Mountain is a wonderful experience, made all the more unforgettable by doing the abseil. It was really thrilling and the views were breathtaking! The Abseil Africa team was friendly and efficient, plus they made me feel very safe. They even... More

This is a great activity to do, one of those bucket-list activities! I'd only abseiled once before, and decided to give this abseil a go, despite not being a big fan of heights! It was booked before I arrived into Cape Town for a Sunday, but on the Friday before, after a morning excursion ended, I was asked if I'd... More

Having never abseiled before, I nearly bottled it at the top but my boyfriend talked me into it and was so glad I did it as it is a once in a lifetime thing. Book this at the beginning of your trip as you have to rely on the weather. Also, book your cable car tickets before you go as... More

I had a great time abseiling down table mountain. Very professional and concerned about your safety. It doesn't matter if you're not experienced because the guys control the descent, just relax, jump and wait for the surprise! Be ready to hike up again and don't forget to book the cable car ride online as the lines can be quite long.

Just read Andy's review below and we had exactly the same problem with cable car staff not knowing we would still need to get the car back down. Seems that happened to a few people the day we were there. We were so lucky with our timing, we called in the morning to check if there was availability and they... More
