Cape Town lies in the Fynbos biome and forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom. There are 6 floral kingdoms globaly and the Cape Floral Kingdom is the smallest and the most diverse per unit of area.

The diversity of fynbos plants is extremely high, with over 9000 species of plants occurring in the biome of which 6200 are endemic, i.e. growing nowhere else in the world.

Table Mountain supports 2200 species, more than the entire United Kingdom. Although the Fynbos only comprises 6% of the area of southern Africa, it has half the total number of plant species on the subcontinent – and has almost 1 in 5 of all African plant species so far described.

Hike takes approximately 2-3 hours and finishes with the the Table Mountain Abseil.

It was amazing!!! The entire team from start to finish was incredible. I had a truly special day planned for myself and my partner, and the team helped out with the entire process. Thanks so much for an unforgetable day! : ) Calvin van Niekerk - Calvin van Niekerk

Brilliant day out! Worth every step! - Charlotte Bradford

A once in a lifetime chance to experience Table Mountain at a different vantage point. I questioned my sanity once I was hanging but the view is worth it and the feeling thereafter is priceless plus a lifetime worth of bragging rights that I was cool to abseil!!!!!!!!! - Lillian Secelela Madeje

Amazing experience! If and when I make it back to Cape Town, I will be doing this again for sure. The staff was amazing. Everyone from the office staff to the abseiling staff. Everyone made sure I felt safe, and that I had a great time. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone. - Scott Lawless
