I met Howard and Jo at the President Hotel and after becoming acquainted we set off on a morning tour of Table Mountain which would include an abseiling adventure off Table Mountain.

Jo in two minds as to whether she wants to sigh the indemnity to want to abseil or not.

Jo says "Oh what the heck I'm not scared of a short drop off Table Mountain!"  JJ

After our journey up Table Mountain we returned to the President Hotel where Jo and Howard took it easy for the rest of the day.

Day 2

This was a fantastic tour for me to do as Howard and Jo were two wonderful people to tour with.  They were down to earth type folk who enjoyed all around them as we travelled through the Peninsula and on top of Table Mountain. As can be seen from the pictures the abseil experience down Table Mountain was an adventure second to none. Overall we had a great journey together and I enjoyed the whole event just as much as I suspect that Howard and Jo did
