Table Mountain abseil – Flickr pic of the day
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
At 1 000m above sea level, it is the world's highest commercial abseil with a controlled descent of 112m. With a number of companies operating on the New7Wonder of Nature, including Abseil Africa, beginners and the more experienced can simply push past their fears, gather a healthy dose of guts and enjoy the views as they rappel down the mountain.
