Abseiling off of Table Mountain was definitely a highlight from my trip to Cape Town. Although I was nervous since I had never done anything like this before, the guides were helpful and encouraging. The key is to avoid looking down and to just enjoy...More

Very exciting way to see Cape Town from this angle! A little expensive but if you are going up table mountain then why not. If I was to go back to Cape Town I would t do it but definitely worth it.
