Very exciting way to see Cape Town from this angle! A little expensive but if you are going up table mountain then why not. If I was to go back to Cape Town I would t do it but definitely worth it.

It was a cool experience but a bit pricey for 2 minutes of abseiling.Great views but too short.Also half of the way down you just hang an a rope as the cliff is interrupted.

We took our 3 kids (ages 11, 13, and 16) on Kamikaze Kanyon which combines abseiling and cliff jumping. Meeting at Sunbird Lodge was the most challenging as Google maps put us about 10 km short - fortunately I had Chizzy's phone number and we...More

While visiting Table Mountain we decided to do this activity. It seems scary at first, but is actually quite easy and you feel safe all of the way. You basically lower yourself down the side of the mountain and get enjoy the scenery on the...More

Was initially hesitant to do the abseil because there was (fake) news floating around about a death at Abseil Africa in Jan. However, the staff reassured me of their track record and I immediately signed up and paid for it. The staff were all helpful...More

This is another must do in Cape Town. Where in the world can you abseil off one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World? And Abseil Africa is well placed and unobtrusive to other visitors. Great fun for the adventurous.

This is a very safe, but adrenaline fuelled activity with breathtaking views. You can either book beforehand and join a guided hike ( 2hours) to the top via Platteklip Gorge or just take the cable car up and buy your tickets there. As with all...More

Hi there, the abseil it’s self is only about 6 minutes long but it’s probably more like 20 minutes to get rigged up and safety demo etc. The hike back we did leisurely so in total we were gone a little over an hour. There’s... More

Yes if cable cars aren't operating I can rebook. We did book online. Best crew to take photos and videos of your abseil! Cool experience
