Table Mountain – One of the new 7 Wonders of Nature

Yes! You read it right. Table Mountain has been voted as one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature. And rightfully so! The mountain overlooks Cape Town and boasts huge diversity. There are about 2,200 species of plants  up there and many of them can not be found anywhere else in the World.

There are also many animals and Dassie is one of them (photo of one will be in the next post). The nearest animal relative is… the elephant! Although they look more like beavers or rats to me!

I decided to do the whole trip on my feet and walked all the way from downtown Cape Town (approx 1h constantly uphill, so beware if you want to do the same), took a cable car up the mountain, walked around the table (circa 2h) and walked down on a 2h eastern trail. The mountain put up a show for me! Breathtaking, amazing, astonishing and stunning. Whatever you call it – it all applies to Table Mountain!

If you happen to be in Cape Town – this one you cannot miss. And if you do have a chance to go – do it straight away and do not hesitate! The cable car is often closed down due to bad weather conditions and I have heard stories of people crying river of tears for not being able to go up the mountain. And if you are lucky to go – take 1 extra layer of clothing. It’s usually windy and way colder than what you can experience at the bottom.

And if you do not plan to venture down there anytime soon, just relax and enjoy! 🙂
