100m drop goes by fast but incredible views especially on a clear day, would highly recommend! Was scarier than I thought it would be because of the heights but exhilarating! Enjoyed the trek back up to the top as well.

Something for young people an/or daredevils to consider is this event. No idea about the price they charge, since I was not interested (also caused by the personal risk they seem to take).

Table mountain is spectacular but to abseil off the top makes it truly memorable. Guides were sound out and great help. What makes it amazing is the time away from crowds and its like havin the mountain and views to yourself. The walk back up...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
