I didn't actually do the abseil myself but my 13 year old daughter and her 15 year old friend did. The instructors were great with the girls and they both said it was the best thing they'd ever done. Thank you for helping and supporting...More

This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cape Town. The trill of going down a 112 meter mountain with a rope by itself is enough to make you scream and sweat. Once you start the abseil, the view from the table mountain is absolutely...More

Hi I would just like to know if you book a ticket online and the cable cars are not operating for example due to bad weather can you cancel the abseil and use for a different day?
