Table Mountain

This majestic sandstone mountain is undoubtedly Cape Town's most well known and well loved landmark. Its flat "table top" stretches for three kilometers and is flanked by Devil's Peak on one side and Lion's Head on the other. When a south-easterly wind blows, the top is obscured by a large white tablecloth of cloud that pours over its steep northern face. At other times when the skies are cloudless, the flat topography of the mountain can be viewed in its best form, glinting proudly against the morning sun. The Table Mountain Reserve is home to an impressive range of indigenous flora, including many endemic species, and is also home to the incredibly rare Ghost Frog, an amphibian only spotted in South Africa's mountain streams. Raptors like jackal buzzards, African harrier-hawks and rock kestrels can be seen circling the skies above the mountain. The mountain is a treat for hikers, climbers and amblers with over 550 well-established paths along its magnificent stretch. The table's Aerial Cableway gives a single rotation on the five-minute ascent/descent, giving passengers a sweeping view of the gorgeous scenery below.
