If you're the adventurous type looking for a more thrilling experience when you're in Cape Town, this is on top of your list. Two things to note; make sure it's a clear day with good visibility otherwise the view won't be that good. Secondly bring your own GoPro because the pictures they will provide are ok at best. Ease of... More

We did the Kamikaze Kanyon Abseiling at Crystal Pools just outside of Gordon's Bay and it was fantastic. It is a whole day trip that starts with a bite to eat and a hike up the mountain along streams and pools along the way. At the top one abseils down next to a waterfall which is quite a rush. We...

This has to be one of the more intense things I've ever done--in a good way! We opted for the Hike + Abseil Combo and it was definitely a workout. The climb is generally described on the website as "moderate" or "intermediate" and, while I'd say it was closer to "difficult," our guide (Patrick!) was incredible, the views were stunning,...

I really felt like writing this comment after coming back to the company abseil africa/crazy adventures for 3 years now. The staff and the service they provide is so great and every time i come in there everyone is so friendly. I would really recommend this place if u want to book something in CPT and surroundings!!

My husband and I did the abseil and had a great time. We have abseiled a handful of times before, but this was much higher than past abseils, and pretty amazing at the top. The people working the abseil were really friendly and fun. The hike back up has great views as well. Really enjoyed the experience!

Took my 74yr old mother abseiling!!! Started slow but the smile on her face afterwards - priceless!!! My wife & her 67yr old brother also thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Fantastic views. The instructor & members of staff are exceptionally patient & helpful. Especially helping my mother to relax & start the abseil. Their support & assistance is superb. First time... More

My partner and I were in Cape Town in September 2016 and we were psyched at the chance to abseil down the new Wonder of Nature! We decided against making an advance booking and that worked out for us as Table Mountain was shrouded in clouds on the day we had been planning to go. We went the following day... More

Our group of 5 had an appointment at 10am to abseil down Table Mountain. A few in our group are terrified of heights but of course this did not stop us! The level of safety during this abseil put each of our minds at ease. Staff involved were very detailed and helpful about going over everything ahead of time to... More

My brother and two sister-in-laws did the strenuous hike up Table Mountain with Abseil Africa, and it was well worth it. The hike is challenging (especially if you are accustomed to being at sea level), but the vistas are amazing. We had a beautiful sunny day, with unfettered views of the city and the ocean below. It was a bit... More
