WWhen you think about Cape Town, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? For most people around the world, the answer is Table Mountain. This is arguably South Africa’s best-known landmark, but what many people don’t know is that it’s also a hiker’s paradise with numerous trails, amazing views and plenty of interesting things to learn. Oh, and it's part of a national park, too! All this in the heart of South Africa’s ever-enchanting Mother City.
South Africa's most famous landmark, Table Mountain, is more than just a pile of rocks in the bay. A protected national park, it has some remarkable features that make it a fantastic destination for nature-lovers, deserving of more than just a quick cable car ride to see the view from the top (although that is totally worth it).
The mountain forms part of Table Mountain National Park, which is globally recognised for its biodiversity what with its truly unique and incredibly beautiful fauna and flora. The park encompasses the Table Mountain chain stretching from Signal Hill in the north to Cape Point in the south including the seas and coastline of the peninsula.
