It was a cool experience but a bit pricey for 2 minutes of abseiling.Great views but too short.Also half of the way down you just hang an a rope as the cliff is interrupted.

This is another must do in Cape Town. Where in the world can you abseil off one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World? And Abseil Africa is well placed and unobtrusive to other visitors. Great fun for the adventurous.

This is a very safe, but adrenaline fuelled activity with breathtaking views. You can either book beforehand and join a guided hike ( 2hours) to the top via Platteklip Gorge or just take the cable car up and buy your tickets there. As with all...More

Hi there, the abseil it’s self is only about 6 minutes long but it’s probably more like 20 minutes to get rigged up and safety demo etc. The hike back we did leisurely so in total we were gone a little over an hour. There’s... More

Yes if cable cars aren't operating I can rebook. We did book online. Best crew to take photos and videos of your abseil! Cool experience
