Customer Reviews

Amazing experience with extremely patient guides. Would definitely recommend - Stephanie

great fun, great team beautiful views and refreshing ponds to swim in all in all a great day ! - Alex

What an enjoyable day out! The team from Abseil Africa were friendly, professional and experts at guiding you over the edge for the abseil. Be brave and do it without a wetsuit! - Burgess day with Abseil Africa at Kamikaze Canyon on the 31st of Dec 22 was fantastic. Even before that day, Leo's service and friendly manner was brilliant. On the day, the guides were absolutely marvellous. All four were professional and friendly. The day was incredible. Unforgettable. I'm an adrenaline junkie and I've done many fun activities in my life, but that day ranked as one of the best days ever for me. The hike is a good workout, and the 65m high abseil next to and through the spectacular waterfall is a unique thrill and a feast for the eyes. And as for that 22m cliff jump - well that really got my adrenaline pumping. Standing up there and looking down made me question my sanity. My heart was pounding like hell as I was counted down . . . and then jumped. There is genuine danger in getting that jump wrong so it was bloody scary - even for a guy like me that's done thousands of skydives. I LOVED IT. The food and service at The Grille Schack was very good too. Thanks so much for an excellent fun experience and one that I'll never forget. ??? - Mark

My wife and I did the kloofing and we both had a fantastic time! Our guides were all absolutely incredible, they looked after the group in such a kind, knowledgeable and professional manner. Highly recommend this activity! - Andrew
