There is no denying that the beautiful views from the top of Table Mountain are simply breathtaking. But now, after my experience abseiling down Table Mountain, I can tell you: the uninterrupted views while abseiling down one of the most majestic natural wonders of the world are not to be missed. The abseil itself is just over a hundred meters, but you step off the top at a thousand meters above sea level, making this the world’s highest commercial abseil experience. The qualified and seasoned guides are friendly and do a great job making you feel safe and putting your mind at ease every step of the way. They show you the ropes, do a safety demonstration at the start, and from your first interaction with the team, you feel like: “these guys know what they’re doing.” I’d say this magnificent experience is a must for real adventurers and thrill-seekers. Remember to bring along some water for the hike back up to the top of the mountain after the abseil experience.

Very professionally done by friendly helpers! Beware you have to climb over 300 steep rough feet back up! Not for the unfit! But I am 78 and did it! Took me an hour!

My friend and I went abseiling today and it was absolutely amazing! The team were really friendly and very professional, helping us to feel comfortable walking backwards off a 1000m high mountain! Such an amazing view and experience, even the hike back up had some seriously great views. Thanks for a good time guys!
