Table Mountain – Africa’s New Natural Wonder

Touch down Capetown and you just cannot miss Table Mountain, the backdrop, Africa’s New Natural World Wonder. The sight is awe inspiring and you can hardly miss a view of this majestic sight at every nook and cranny of the city. It is almost like a shadow which looms in the background and the very the possibility of you out running it is extremely slim.

Camps Bay

It was two days to my leaving South Africa and I had not hiked Table mountain. The weather had not been the best for a couple of days hence I could not hike. Seeing that hiking was barely feasible, and I sure was not about leaving without getting on top there. I decided to go via the Cable car.

It was really cold up there, there were a lot of people, it was quite cloudy and there sure was no view whatsoever. Just an endless void. Going up in the afternoon would sure have been a better sight.

I was going to do my mountain jump and get a higher altitude but I was freaking scared as it sure looked like I was going to drop down 3,558 ft.

However Gaelen, my Couch Surfing Local was there to give me a helping hand.

Sometimes friends can really be useful to get you to that altitude you desire. However if I am ever in Capetown again, I’d totally love to Hike up Table Mountain and  Abseil down. Cheers Guys!
