The South African winelands are not only home to some of the world’s finest vintages and award-winning estates, but also incredible adventure experiences. From mountain biking to quad biking, zip-lining to trail running and sky diving to abseiling, for those seeking adrenaline-fueled adventures, those brave souls willing to tackle the extreme, you will get your fix in the winelands.


The Constantia Wine Valley in Cape Town is a gateway to the extreme. Centrally located, the valley is about 20 minutes away from Table Mountain, where after taking the aerial cableway to the top, you can find another, quicker way down, by simply stepping off the edge… Abseil Africa provides you with the opportunity, but it’s up to you to steel yourself and take a plunge. With plenty of gallows humour at the edge - sure to test even the hardiest adventurer - epic views of the Atlantic Seaboard await those brave enough to take on the challenge. Trust us, it’s totally worth it.

If you would rather stay in the valley for your adventurous pursuits, and are up for some high-flying fun, the Cape Town Zipline tour at Silvermist Estate is a must. With up to 500 metres of lines running high above the tree canopy, this incredible experience is an adrenaline-fueled ride that will have you hollering with delight as you zip over the valley below. Just make sure you remember to take in the beauty that lies below.
