Owner description: Abseil an ancient 50m cliff into a riverbed surrounded by beautiful indigenous forests. More than just an abseil. This unique double discipline trip offers an introduction into ViaFerrata climbing as you make your way to the abseil edge. It is fun, it is testing and ultimately it will have your heart thumping! Bringing with it the rewards of accomplishing a challenge! Strive to be Free.

I booked the Afriabseil. and i went to the 1st finger and although I backed off. It was still worth to say that they are well prepared and did a great effort in setting this piece of adventure. definitely worth a try but needs a strong heart.

After a short briefing on our equipment and safety rules, we began our adventure! The guides were very friendly and clearly very experienced, and we felt safe at every step along the way. Even at points where we were nervous or anxious, the guides slowed down and helped us out. They took pictures for us, too, which was fantastic. Don't forget to stop and take in the breathtaking scenery...it's beautiful out there! I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys a bit of a challenge, it's worth it!

We enjoyed a great experience with a lot of adrenalin but always in a very safe environment. After climibing down the via ferrata with a great view on the canyon the real fun started with the 50 meter abseiling down to the river. A great experience and some great views on baboons.

Arrived at the start and were greeted by a bunch of super friendly instructors (we were lucky enough to get Sims, Kegan and Ninja. We were driven to the abseiling part of the crags and given a safety briefing by Sims, including a safety check. Sims then guided us along the climbing route out to the edge, where Kegan took over and guided us through the abseiling section.

It was incredible, do make sure you stop to check out the scenery because it's stunning, and take a camera :) the team were amazing and took pics the whole way through for us.

Once down at the bottom we were able to enjoy the views more, before we began our walk up some steps back to the top (don't worry there are rest stops)!

It was a super fun activity and we'd do it again in a heartbeat. 100% recommend if you like being outdoors, spectacular views and something a bit active.

A friend and myself booked this activity without any special knowledges about it and I must say that it was really an amazing afternoon for both of us with the AfriAbseil Team!
A very warm welcome to start followed by a clear explanation session done with a lot of professionalism. The security of the participants is the first and main goal of the Team.
Even if we were a bit intimidated by the challenge at the biginning of the activity we very quickly felt in good hands and we both had a lot of fun with the team.
I really recommend to everyone to try this very special experience with AfriAbseil!!!
You will not regret it and will certainly enjoy the amazing landscapes and will feel proud about yourself! Push your limits and have fun!!!
A BIG THANK YOU for this amazing experience in South Africa.
N.B. Special thanks to "Mr 5 Minutes"!!! ;-)
