Even the most seasoned of travelers will describe Cape Town as being one of the most beautiful cities they have ever laid eyes on! Even more breathtaking is the view of Cape Town from the top of iconic Table Mountain as you are about to commence the mind-blowing Abseiling descent – its description is beyond words!
Table Mountain’s most distinctive feature is its 3km long flat-topped plateau which can be reached either by cable car or hiking trail. Why is Table Mountain flat, you may ask? In millennia gone by, the top of Table Mountain formed part of the bottom of a valley. The softer parts of the valley floor eroded away to form the Cape Flats and an extremely hard, erosion-resistant quartz sandstone platform was left behind…Table Mountain, one of Africa’s most recognizable natural features and favourite tourist attractions!
Table Mountain sustains a particularly rich biodiversity supporting unique Cape fynbos vegetation and smaller wildlife including porcupine, rock hyrax and the rare Table Mountain ghost frog. Table Mountain National Park is protected as part of the Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site.
Abseiling from the top of Table Mountain is without a doubt one of life’s defining moments! Starting at 1000m above sea level, the jaw-dropping panoramic views from the 112m descent just keep getting better. With Camps Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard and the sparkling ocean below and the Twelve Apostles to the side, what better way to spend a glorious sunny morning as the expert abseiling instructors help you make a dream come true! Abseiling Table Mountain is weather dependant, no experience is necessary and a well-earned ‘insanity certificate’ is awarded on completion!
