For someone who was soooo afraid to do this (and terribly afraid of heights), this was such an amazing experience and the guys made me (and the group) feel very very safe. The views are incredible and even the hike back through India Venster is something amazing. I would recommend this over and over again and would totally do it many more times!

One of the best and most thrilling views of Cape Town is rappelling from the top of the iconic Table Mountain with Abseil Africa! We've been rappelling before, but this takes rappelling to a whole other level. Abseil Africa is a 1000 meter rappel with beautiful views of the beach and mountain coastline below. Our rappelling guides, Warren and Owen, made the entire experience so fun and safe. Anytime you are planning on bouncing off the side of a 1000 meter mountain, you want to make sure safety is the #1 priority. Abseil Africa uses 2 professional rappelling ropes that hold a total of 5 tons! (So even if you had a big breakfast that morning you still don't have to worry about the ropes holding you =) For extra safety, the guides are there to hold you so there is no chance of anything going wrong. The rappelling itself was so much fun. Bouncing off the wall is probably the closest I'll ever feel to walking on the moon. Whether you are looking to conquer your fear of heights, or just looking for a thrilling way to see Cape Town, we definitely recommend checking out Abseil Africa on Table Mountain!

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!
