Ziplining in Cape Town

Seen as one of Cape Town’s best adventure activities, situated in Constantia Nek, this adventure activity is not to be missed if you are seeking an adventure filled activity.

The adventure begins with a brief safety introduction at the zipline office within the Silvermist Estate. From there guests will embark on a hair raising guided 4 x 4 drive into the mountain high above Constantia with a spectacular view of Cape Town. Cape Town Ziplines borders on the Table Mountain National Park Reserve. You will be surrounded by the natural beauty, fauna and flora while walking and zipline between the 12 platforms.
