Hike Table Mountain via Skeleton Gorge
- About 4 hours
This is for the adventurous folks who don't mind some heights and a little bit of exposure. You start on the north face of the mountain, overlooking the city and climb your way up with the cable car overhead the whole way. There is a fair amount of scrambling (climbing up rocks), use of staples in the rocks and some chain handrails (no ropes required). Three-quarters of the way up we turn around to the West side of the mountain and get stunning views over Camps Bay and down the Atlantic seaboard and Twelve Apostles. We then turn to head up the last short uphill onto the top of Table Mountain and to the cable car. Some fitness and head for heights required.
Hike takes approximately 3-4 hours and finishes with the option of doing the Table Mountain Abseil.

I didn't abseil but I meet some of the crew at the Berg River Dam. They were setting up for the Bastille Day trail run. 5 stars as they had a bag and were picking up litter...some of it pretty gross. Well done, guys.
This is just amazing. You can abseil from the table mountain and you got an amazing view. But also you can go to a Kamikaze Canyon tour which is incredible. You can jump of a 22 meter high cliff into the water up. in the mountains. The guides are very professional! A lot of fun.
Absolute Amazing Experience on one of the new 7 wonders of the world, no better place to do this than with Abseil Africa on top of table mountain, the views are amazing, the experience is unbeatable and the staff really have got your back from the very beginning until the end. We was late arriving due to a long unexpected hike up to the top but we contacted the team who was very professional and friendly from the moment we made the booking, they contacted us via whatsapp which i preferred. Would highly recommend this to all who are visiting cape town.. Plans changed and the Abseil Africa team was more than accommodating this is a team who have got their act together and truly do focus on their customers experiences.
Amazing experience with friendly staff that took a few photos and a video as I descended down. Although I wasn’t a complete novice, they explained everything very clearly & concisely making the entire process enjoyable. The trek back up was wasn’t too bad either and just can’t get over the gorgeous view!
