The abseil against on the cliff face of the Magaliesberg was developed to provide an alternative to hiking down from the top of the mountain after climbing the Via Ferrata.
From our visitors book: "This was great - never done any rock climbing before; the Via Ferrata was a brilliant introduction!" T W from Benoni.
You visit with relative safety the sites and experience the thrills previously reserved only for ardent rock climbers.
During the climb and abseil you will improve your eye, hand and body coordination, listening skills and conquer your fear for the unknown.
This is an excellent group and team building adventure.
After enjoying the view from the top you abseil halfway down the cliff face to a ledge where you wait for your fellow abseilers while you enjoy the view of the valley and the Hartebeestpoort Dam.
You then complete the second abseil with its vertical drop to the bottom of the cliff face before hiking down the mountain
Our braai facilities are available. Just bring your own food, utensils and firewood or charcoal.
