Abseil 25m down Chicken Hill, walk back up and then experience the thrill all over again. Chicken Hill is 15min walk from our office - Abseiling, although a relatively “old” adventure sport, it is still a favourite amongst adrenaline seekers. It is practiced in a controlled environment which makes it a very safe activity, yet stepping backwards over the edge and descending down the cliff will give you an adrenaline rush!
Logistically the abseil on Chicken Hill is very easy. It is only a 15 min walk to the top of the abseiling site. The abseil is 25m high. You will first abseil down a 10 m cliff face after which you step over an overhang, then you abseil the remaining 15 m hanging in the air. You don’t need any previous abseiling experience. Make sure you bring something to drink and a hat with as there is no shade.
Champagne Castle Adventure Centre is a one stop team building and family adventure destination, based at Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort in the Central Drakensberg.
