A fable story: How Table Mountain got it’s Table Cloth.
Cape Town is inseparable to the image of Table Mountain in the background. A plateau as flat as a table gives this mountain its distinctive shape. Cloths of clouds form over the top, giving this mellow pattern the name “Table Cloth”. The story goes Van Hunks, a local pirate had a smoking contest on top of the mountain which lead to the formation of the Table Cloth, although those are fables.
The sandstone mountain range, with layers of granite, extend far South all the way down the Cape Peninsula and through to Cape Point. The giant spine-like formation of the ridge, conditioned over time gave the appearance of a Table Top. Hard-wearing standstone broken-off by the wind and rain formed the characteristic cliffs.
The small city is honored to have the largest selection of species per kilometer or mile in the whole world. The Floral Kingdom here consists of over 1470 species of unique plants throughout the Protected Area and National Wildlife Park.
Travelers flock to the mountain for day tours, sight seeing and other activities.

1 of 1020. Maya, Canada. A great time “above the city” 🙂 – After a brief Cableway ride for only 10 minutes was arrival at the top of Table Mountain with it’s abundant view points including designated and random spots to photograph along the trails and mountain’s edge. It offers breathtaking and dramatic aerial photographs of the city of Cape Town. The close proximity to the oceans gives a distinct look. Many mountain ranges exist in this region like the 12 Apostles, like the one seen from the North point of Table Mountain viewing deck. The tour guide was helpful, professional and experienced, and above all, and gave excellent insight into the history and formation of the mountain. We had a spacious walk on top with our group, while I searched for the “best panorama” to take photos, found many by looking towards Lions Head, Signal Hill, and the Atlantic Ocean. The walking trail was easy and the guide made it a short walk worthwhile. There was tons of plant life, and we stopped by the the gift shop for a while, and ate some cake at the café. My husband bought breakfast and we enjoyed some nice coffee and scrambled eggs on croissants.
