My boyfriend and I booked the Empress Canyon package, which involved half a day of abseiling followed by canyoning and a 30m waterfall abseil to top everything off.
Our instructors were Tim and Chewie. I cannot praise them highly enough, they were both so friendly, informative, and professional, helping us work on our abseiling technique. We first abseiled down a 5m cliff to learn the basics, before doing a 15m abseil and a 30m abseil where your legs dangle down as you descend the side of the cliff, scary but exhilarating!!!!
We delicious ham salad sandwiches and fruit for lunch, with plenty to go around. We then headed down to Empress Canyon where we put on wet suits and waded down a creek and did some spectacular water jumps which were so much fun. When we got to the end of the creek you had the option to either slide into the pool or do a massive rock jump, I'd definitely recommend the rock jump as it gets the adrenaline pumping!
We then abseiled straight down the middle of a 30m waterfall which was the absolute highlight, it was AMAZING!!! The water rushes all over you, it is the best feeling!!!! After this Tim encouraged us to do a few more jumps into the pool at the side of the waterfall (we couldn't get enough!) before we headed back home. If you have waterproof camera, definitely take it as several people in our group got some great action footage with their go pro cameras doing the water jumps and the waterfall abseil.
Overall, it truly was a fantastic day out, we couldn't stop smiling and I have no hesitation in recommending a trip with High n Wild! We will definitely be back!!!!!
