Abseiling in Cape Town, South Africa should definitely be on your bucket list of adventurous things to do!
The magic of Cape Town lies in the fact that you can be lying on a beach or shopping at the busy and vibrant waterfront and literally 30-minutes later you can be on top of Table Mountain about to abseil off a sheer cliff 1068-meters above the sea!
Table Mountain is ancient - six times older than the Himalayas - and the various forces and elements of nature have carved it, over millennia, into a daredevil’s playground. The precipitous cliffs were formed by waves crashing against the mountain when the sea levels were much higher. Now specially licenced adventure operators give you one of the world’s most stunning abseil experiences. Views of Lions Head, the Atlantic Seaboard and the city bowl will go a long way to distracting you from your terror as you lean back and abseil off the iconic flat-topped mountain - Cape Town’s most famous landmark - a tiny speck against the great cliffs of Table Mountain.
