If you are visiting Table Mountain, you should definitely think about abseiling. It's a great experience, and the views from the top are amazing. An unforgetable experience, for sure!

This company was great to work with! I have never abseiled, they made it easy and fun. They take lots of pics and videos if you want. I would highly recommend them!

I did the guided hike up, the abseil and the hike down. I wouldn't consider myself 'unfit' but the hike is not to be underestimated (I would not think of it as leisurely or suitable for couch-potatoes). Would strongly advise taking strong shoes or hiking boots if you have them as the track is made from large (and, in places,... More

My friend and I joined the hike + abseil program and we picked a pretty good day to do it. Overall everything went very smoothly, the staff were very friendly and the abseiling was absolutely amazing. What stunning view to take in! The only comment I would have is that for such an amazing experience, we only had 4 photos... More

We bumped into these guys virtually as soon as we got off the cable car. The team of three were experienced and explained everything to us clearly. They also took pictures with our cameras for us which was great. Views were fantastic we felt safe (me and two teenage daughters), there is a fair walk back up at the end... More

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...
