Customer Reviews

I wouldn't be lying if i said this was the best day i enjoyed through my stay in cape town. Nothing beats the amount of fun we had with you guys... cheesy, own and all the guids were more than professional and helpful. I would definitely hoin you again if i ever came to cape town. - Reem


Abseil Africa was an epic adventure! We did the waterfall rappel and had a blast. Cheesy, G, and Owen were awesome guides. They were funny and knowledgeable about the area as well as the process of everything we did. The breakfast at Sunbird Lodge was a perfect way to start the day before the hike and cliff jumping. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town! - Garrett McGhee


Gorgeous terrain and knowledgable guides made for an exhilarating experience -- thank you! :) - Daniel


the breakfast was excellent- it's definitely a must to be included in the day's itinerary. The location for breakfast and drinks was very cool- very comfy and great hospitality The guides were excellent at splitting up and accommodating the very different hiking speeds within our group so that nobody was straggling behind alone or feeling like a snail. the guides were great about being encouraging and fun during the whole abseil process for everyone who was nervous or hesitant about going. They were also fun to joke with on the hike and fun while rock jumping. Overall great experience! only the weather put a bit of a damper on things. - Katie Reeder


Amazing day out would recommend it - SACHA HENDRICKS
