Something for young people an/or daredevils to consider is this event. No idea about the price they charge, since I was not interested (also caused by the personal risk they seem to take).

We had walked up table top mountain hoping Abseil Africa would be operating that day. We were in luck it was an amazing clear day and we found a slot when all three of us could abseil together. It was awesome 120 meters. Half way...More

Table mountain is spectacular but to abseil off the top makes it truly memorable. Guides were sound out and great help. What makes it amazing is the time away from crowds and its like havin the mountain and views to yourself. The walk back up...More

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.

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

The hike back was not bad. I am not a fan of heights but you are so focused on where you are going on the hike that you don't think of looking down. I was chatting to someone the whole time and never thought about the... 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
