Abseil Table Mountain for the Ultimate Adrenaline Rush + Views

Abseil Table Mountain for the Ultimate Adrenaline Rush + Views

For super-sized views of the Mother City – and an adrenaline rush second to none!

Cape Town’s topography is coveted the world over for its sheer beauty and diversity, ranging from mountains and oceans to valleys, vineyards and forests. Its most famous natural landmark is undoubtedly Table Mountain – a kilometre-tall plateau that presides over the city. Flanked by Devil’s Peak to the east and by Lion’s Head to the west, this broad sweep of mountainous height forms a dramatic backdrop to Cape Town.

Most visitors to this iconic sandstone-and-granite monument choose to climb it via the cable car or one of the seven hikes that traverse it. But if you’re an adrenaline-seeker, why not abseil Table Mountain?

Abseiling is a thrilling experience that allows you to enjoy views of the City Bowl and Table Bay Harbour from a different perspective, permitting you to decide how fast or slow you would like to make your way down the mountain. And, if you’re feeling super-energetic, you might like to hike and abseil Table Mountain all in one day!

Of course, both options are done in the company of a trained guide.

Being 1 000 metres above sea level makes for an exhilarating experience as you are lowered into the vortex, the vast blue ocean stretching out before as you, and Camps Bay, Lion’s Head and The Twelve Apostles forming a panorama of splendour.
