Customer Reviews

Great service from the booking process right through to the final abseil. The abseil staff made those that were nervous in our party feel at ease. Great experience and everyone loved it!! - Kim Stevenson

From the moment i emailed about questions to completion of the Abseil.. It was a first class experience.. I recommend without reservation to do both! Guide X was a pleasure.. Safe and Knowledgable... If you are ever in the Cape Town area and have a morning free it is a MUST DO for the adventurer.. - Johnny(paid cc for one combo and extra hike with x, starting @ 7am)

Outstanding all around experience. Kathy was exceptional in every way and we feel truly grateful to have had her guide us up the mountain. She was extremely knowledgeable and a fantastic person in general. The rest of the staff who assisted with the abseiling was outstanding as well. They were professional and made us feel safe. Furthermore, they were calm and encouraging which made the descent a piece of cake. I'd recommend this experience to all my friends and family. - Ryan Donnelly

We had an excellent time with the guided hike and abseil from Table Mountain. Our guide up, Kathy, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to hike with. She gave us lots of information about the plant life, the mountain, and the city. Our abseil was wonderful as well! Very kind staff who made us feel more at ease about hanging off the side of the mountain. I would definitely go on an adventure with Abseil Africa again! - Megan Diehl

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 had the route to ourself. Our guide X was absolutely fantastic! He gave us loads of info during the hike. He was friendly and professional and didn't mind all the photo stops we made :) As for the guys who organised the abseil - what a great testament to the company! They were friendly and professional and gave me loads of encouragement when I burst into tears. They contributed to making my boyfriend's 40th his best birthday ever and such a special day. Thank you Abseil Africa! We will be back! - Glynis Leo
