Excuse me while I gush about abseiling down Table Mountain. We were told that this was one thing not to miss while in Cape Town, and oh, is that true. If your pounding heart can take it, you absolutely have to throw yourself off that cliff and experience for yourself the thrill of hanging 1000 m in the air. Better yet, abseil once to get over your fear, then do it again to really soak in the incredible view.
The instructors are excellent.
We found the walk to the top of the mountain to be more exhausting than the abseil down (possibly because our knees felt like jelly from the adrenaline!). The walk is awesome. Do give yourself plenty of time to explore the top of the mountain as well. The cafe on the mountain is cheap, especially considering the logistics for them. Take your camera and water clipped onto your belt or pocket, and wear sunscreen.

This is the scariest thing i have ever done.... and i have done a lot of things!
You need to trust yourself, as you will be the one with the controll on the rope, and their may not always be someone watching...

The staff are amazing, all very friendly and funny and will cheer you on when you get nervous!
Make sure you take R100 cash so you can get the cable car down afterwards... :)
