  • Amazing experience with friendly staff that took a few photos and a video as I descended down. Although I wasn’t a complete novice, they explained everything very clearly & concisely making the entire process enjoyable. The trek back up was wasn’t too bad either and just can’t get over the gorgeous view!
  • just rip off. They have offered to postpone the due to the injury of my friend. When we wanted to take the new appointment, nobody of them was on the mountain. Nobody let us know that it will not take place. Despite bright sunshine. Then we had no way to rappel. The provider kept the paid 2000Rand / 140Euro although that is not our fault. Goodwill is an absolutly foreign word. Just predatory and cheeky. I find that very irresponsible.
  • Amazing experience! Awesome staff. They need a better way of capturing the experience, maybe mounting go pros on your helemt or something. Only thing they do give is photos before you go down the mountain. If you decide to go, take something with to capture the whole experience.
  • Amazing experience although my handler was not the friendliest of fellows. It was a spectacular view and we got down safe and sound and had a good hike back up. Very exhilarating. They did forget to give us our car key so we had to rush down the mountain to collect it from my not too friendly handler. He just handed it to us without even an apology and just walked away without a word. That definitely soured it for us a bit.
  • We enjoyed our abseil down table mountain. We were late (due to unexpected queues down at the cable car). A quick phone call and it was all sorted. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get on and off the mountain.
