Clarens - Abseiling

Down you Go
Down you Go Credits: Clarens Xtreme

Abseiling has become a major sporting activity in its own right. It’s the method climbers use to get off a mountain - or special force military and rescue personnel use to descend buildings. Abseiling at Clarens is fun, and it is quite safe, once you overcome the shock of hanging suspended in mid air!

Clarens Xtreme’s abseiling experience is at Swartland, which is a 50m high sandstone rock face overlooking the picturesque town of Clarens. 50m is about 20 storeys high! It is an easy hike up the back of the cliff and with a vertical drop at the face, it offers breathtaking views of the

Highlands, which adds an extra dimension to this adrenalin packed abseiling experience.

 If 50m sounds too high then you can try Clarens Xtreme’s smaller abseiling experience at Bokpoort which is a 25m abseil. The Abseil is also perfect for school groups. It also offers an opportunity to go horse riding in one of the most beautiful areas around our town.

 Anybody who can fit into a rock climbing harness can do abseiling.  You don't need strength to hold your weight – Clarens Xtreme’s experienced guides will show you an easy technique that requires very little strength.  The guides also have control over your descent to make sure you are safe. Thus no experience is required for abseiling.

Our unique abseiling venue situated in town in Clarens has a Coffee Bean Roastery, Sports Pub, Bakery, Deli and Art Gallery, so for those not into the adventure side of life there is something for you while the rest of the gang exhaust themselves Abseiling.

At Clarens Xtreme you can also do White Water Rafting, Paintball, Quadbiking, Enduro Riding, a Hiking Trail and Archery

Getting There

From Johannesburg the easiest way (but a little longer) is to go via Harrismith on the N3. You can take the Warden Street exit (near the Wimpy at Harrismith) and drive into Harrismith on Warden Street. Turn right into Piet Retief, Left into Mc Kechnie and then right into Cloete. This will take you to the N5.

Turn right and go towards Bethlehem. Alternatively you can bypass Harrismith and pick up the N5 on the Durban side of Harrismith. 

Just before Bethlehem turn left onto the R711 to Clarens.

Clarens Xtreme is at 530 Sias Oosthuizen Street which is the service road next to the R711 as you enter Clarens.
