Table Mountain is undoubtedly a walkers paradise. It is rare to find such beauty that can be explored on foot, so close to a major city. The Cape Peninsula offers an abundance of flora and fauna to delight even the most casual observer. Some of the most breathtaking views in the world can be enjoyed and it is common to stumble upon a little piece of history while walking in the mountains. To explore Table Mountain on foot is the only way to fully appreciate this unique corner of Africa. So take the time not just to see but to smell, touch and hear all the wonders that are found right here in Cape Town.
