Activity description

Abseiling is all about using a rope and other specialised equipment to descend a cliff. The serene Kaaimans Gorge holds one of the most beautiful abseil spots you will find.

You have a chance to do two 45 metre abseils right next to a magnificent waterfall. The first abseil is an easy one, to get you used to the idea of trusting the ropes and the second one is slightly more technical however, it is just as exhilarating.

What also makes this site special is that you land in a canoe at the bottom. You don't need to have abseiled before however, this activity is not for the fainthearted! It is also important to remember to wear shoes with good grip that won't slip.

Offer Description

We had an amazing time abseiling with Eden Adventures. Our guides, Steve and Sid, really made the experience the most memorable and enjoyable. We were lucky to get a good group of other abseilers who were friendly and encouraging, and all equally inexperienced and cautious. However, Steve does a really wonderful job of coaching each participant down the rock face, and not making anyone feel the least bit rushed or pressured. He also was very funny and kept cracking jokes, which made everything better! We would 100% do it again, and look forward to trying the Kloofing Tour with Eden Adventures the next time we are in wilderness.
