My friends and I took the Serendipity Canyon experience and had no regrets! Our guides, Tim and Jemma were friendly and ever-ready to share their knowledge about the flora and fauna. Their instructions for abseiling were clear and helped us feel safe throughout the experience. They truly do their best to assist you in getting the best adventure possible. The... More

Just finished the half day abseiling tour. It was amazing with beautiful views. Tim was a great guide. I could tell he really knew what he was doing. I was the only one in my group, so we got through each spot very quick. He offered for me to go more times, but I had more than enough fun with... More

We went as a family of 4 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had never abseiled before and was a little nervous at first. But our tour guides were really patient and encouraging. We abseiled on the morning then stopped for lunch. On the afternoon we put on our wet suits and we went into the canyon. Jumping into pools, (which... More

This has been one of the best experiences I've ever had. We went as a group of friends of 6 people to do the canyoning and the abseiling and all of us really enjoyed the experience: it is really exciting, you can feel the adrenaline building up! The staff from High'n Wild were really friendly and helpful, I will repeat... More

My boyfriend and I did the empress falls abseil and canyon tour. It was a lot of fun! I'd never abseiled before so it was good to spend the morning abseiling, from smaller to larger heights to get you prepared for the waterfall abseil at the end! The tour guide prepared a lovely lunch of rolls with salad and cold... More

Fantastic day, cold and tough at times, but this makes it what it is. Often these 'adventure' things are tame, but this pushes you, but not too much.

We have taken 30 to 50 twenty yr old students every year for the past 10 years with High n Wild - it is capacity building and a lesson in self-preservation and courage for all of them. The staff are 100% reliable, the climbs always thoughtfully selected to group and weather conditions and the experience ALWAYS positive. Highly highly recommended.... More

I did what I think was a trifecta of awesome: the Boars head abseiling and Empress Canyon in one day, and the Sweet Dreams rock climbing. Going with a private guide meant I didn't have to wait for groups of other people to do the each individual pitch and I thoroughly recommend it. Both the guides were legends, clearly knew... More
