Activity description

Experience the exhilaration and thrill of abseiling down one of the most majestic natural wonders of the world: Table Mountain!

Step off the top at 1000 metres above sea level, and Abseil into mind-blowing vertical space. This is the world’s highest commercial abseiling point. You'll be surrounded by awesome views and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean at your feet.

The best thing is that No experience is needed, the guides show you the ropes and talk you through the whole process!

The panoramic views from the top of Table Mountain are breathtaking, but the views from the abseil are even better. Whilst descending down the side of a sheer cliff you will have Camps Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard and the deep blue ocean at your feet with the Twelve Apostles on your side. Table Mountain Abseiling is guaranteed to get your pulse racing.

Abseil Africa operates on a daily basis as long as weather permits to do so, between 9:30am and 3:30pm.

The overall experience will take about 45 min to an hour and includes:
• Signing and Harnessing up
• A Safety briefing
• Accessing the Abseiling site
• A 112 metre controlled descent off Cape Town’s magnificent Table Mountain.
• A pleasant hike back to the top

It excludes the Cableway Ticket which you can buy from www.webtickets.co.nz

Absolute breathtaking! No experience necessary. We were running about 46 minutes late but it wasn’t a problem at all. So accomodating :)

Amazing experience

Amazing once in a lifetime experience

Exciting experience with incredible view
  • 5 / 5

I had been so nervous but the instructors had been absolutely patient with me and explained every step. I was a bit surprised that on the last meters you're not having direct contact to the mountain anymore but you're only hanging on the rope in the open air, which was a bit frightening in the beginning. On the other hand this part is very cool because you can enjoy the beautiful view without facing the mountain during the whole abseil.

Inoubliable mais trop court
  • 4.5 / 5

La descente en rappel était dingue, en revanche un peu trop court. La description disait 45mn-1h de descente mais en 3 mn c'était terminé

Amazing Abseiling Experience at Table Mountain
  • 5 / 5

Everything was better than what we had expected. It was crowded at the cable car station and we ended up arriving more than half an hour past our appointment time and staff were too kind to still accommodate us into the schedule.

Over too soon!!!
  • 5 / 5

Plenty of fun, over too soon - wish I could have done it twice!
