Cape Town Adrenaline Overload

Abseil. Shark cage diving and skydiving.



Cape Town is the most exciting and Xtreme city in Africa. Home to the worlds highest abseil – Table Mountain, the best place in the world to go shark cage diving and a mighty fine drop zone over the cape of good hope, it sure gives New Zealand Queenstown a run for its money. 5 nights 100% Adrenaline. The perfect start or finish to any South Africa gap year adventure.


Cape Town Adrenaline Overload: Trip Highlights


South Africans are a great bunch but they’re also slightly nuts. Of course we encourage this being Xtreme Gap Year, we know doing these kinds of things while you travel can really make your trip amazing. This is the ultimate African adrenaline fix, 3 Flavours depending on how much of an adrenaline junky you are!

  • HARD (SCARY)
  • DOUBLE HARD (VERY SCARY)
  • XTREME GAPPER MENTALIST (WEAR BROWN TROUSERS)

The hard version does not include a sky dive or shark cage dive – but does include the world’s highest abseil off Table Mountain. There is also an awesome day out Sand-boarding down the dunes and a surf lesson, so you can learn to surf with Table Mountain as a back drop. How awesome is that!  There is plenty to see and do and on the days off as there are loads of optional activities (arranged locally), like seeing Cape point, wine tours, big five safaris, walking tours or just chilling on the beach.

The Double Hard Version is like the hard version, but you can add on either a Shark Cage Dive or a Skydive, so for all you adrenaline seekers, this is one not to be missed.

The mentalist, well, you do it all!
