The Abseil Africa team definitely made this holiday to South Africa one of the most memorable experiences! We hiked up Table Mountain (via Indian Venster route). We had to set off at 5.30am due to it being a very hot day. This meant that we...More

If you get chance to do this - it's an absolute must. Top tip - give yourselves plenty of time to catch the cable car to Table Mountain. We had a 2 hour wait and would have missed our booking slot if it wasn't for...More

Had made the booking a number of weeks prior to getting to Cape Town. On the morning of the Abseil, Table Mountain was covered in thick cloud. Although I did not get to see the view, the decent down the cliff face was still exhilarating....More

Amazing location, fairly short drop 112m approx, but wow, the view. They underplay the hike back up, which is longer and a little more treacherous than expected. A little expensive (save 100r on line). Overall, not to be missed. The people running it are so...More
