Discovering the heights of Table Mountain

|The next iconic visit spot is off course Table Mountain! We’ve seen it every day from below for the past 4 weeks and now we finally get to climb upon it.
Table Mountain (Afrikaans: Tafelberg) is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. Table Mountain National Park is the most visited national park in South Africa, attracting 4.2 million people every year for various activities. The mountain has 8,200 plant species, of which around 80% are fynbos, meaning fine bush. It forms part of the Table Mountain National Park, and part of the lands formerly ranged by Khoe-speaking clans, such as the !Uriǁʼaes (the "High Clan"). It is home to a large array of mostly endemic fauna and flora.
The Cable Car taking us up to the top of Table Mountain, just that ride was an amazing experience of getting so close to nature, the mountain and the cliff formations.
Up above we took long walks, many view pictures and just contemplated the beauty over the sea from all angles of Table Mountain

Amazing day at Table Mountain
Always South African music around the corners!
Once coming down from the mountain we headed off to Take Off to move it from its repairing harbour to its normal harbour at Waterfront. An opportunity for the families to have a feeling of being on the boat at sea.
And now overlooking Table Mountain from the sea!
