If you are new to abseil like us, you'll enjoy the adrenaline rush as we did. The views are stunning and the crew are helpful and know how to take some good photos. Book with them directly on their website or over the phone to avoid any unnecessary commission from the travel agents.

If you are looking for a little adrenalin buzz then this is for you. Suitable for all levels, and perfectly safe and well run. We were blessed with a perfect day and the views from the mountain were spectacular. The abseil itself starts off fairly easily with a little tricky moment half way down - all part of the fun....

Did the 112m abseil from the top of Table Mountain. The company were very responsive by text to let me know if the abseil was going ahead or not as they had to check the conditions. The guys operating the abseil were fun and professional. The abseil itself was quite scary, it seems higher than you think, but that's the... More

We did the hike and abseil Table Mountain on May of 2016. The hike provided beautiful views and was not too difficult. Our guide, Dohann, was very patient and gave us good information about the area, weather patterns and plantlife. Took us about 2 hours to get up to the top of Table mountain. The weather once we got on... More

I didn't think that I could do it...scared ,scared, scared!! But, the guys at the top were very convincing that I was safe and secure. They "had me" as I went down the mountain...and let me go as fast as I wanted...and jump as far out as I wanted...or didn't want! Great experience...the climb back up the mountain was definitely...

I can't recommend Abseil Africa enough. The staff were happy and helpful throughout and the view is absolutely stunning. The Abseil itself was a fantastic experience and it's definitely a unique way to see the coastline.

Hubby did this on spur the moment having walked up the mountain and thought it was one of the best things he did whilst we were away. We arrant "abseilers"so cannot compare it to elsewhere but he thought it was fantastic

Being on top of Table Mountain already is fantastic. But then getting in a harness and abseiling from it just makes it unforgettable. I highly recommend the Abseil Africa experience. They are professional, flexible and helpful.

We booked online and had great contact from their office on the day off the abseil. They let us change to go the next day when the weather was clearer and it was worth the wait! The guys who do the instruction and all importantly control the safety lines were amazing as well as our man on the ground when... More

This is a really cool activity to do at Table Mountain. I would advise you to bring some water and put it in the bag that comes down with you. The hike back to the top is long and steep at some points.
