Cape Town and Table Mountain are often said in the same sentence, and it’s no wonder why when you actually see it and how much of a part of Cape Town it is. You can see it no matter where you are. It’s really quite breathtaking & deserves a post of its own.
For those who don’t know, Table Mountain got its name for its uncanny resemblance to, you guessed it….a table. The official inauguration of Table Mountain as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature took place at a ceremony held at the foot of the mountain on Sunday, 2 December 2012.
Being married to a South African who grew up with a view of Table Mountain from his childhood bedroom window, it’s very sentimental to him. We always joked when we had our baby he would take her home, to the top of Table Mountain and hold her up lion king style, and he did! It’s now a tradition and we’ll do it every time we go back until she’s too big or it just looks plain weird 😂, but for now she loves it too…
The only issue I have with Table Mountain, is my ridiculous fear of heights and the fact I have to get the cable car up there. It’s high. Very very high. But I made it again and I’m so glad I did. Just a word of warning tho, it’s a long long queue to get in said cable car, so you’ve got lots of time to think (panic) about it before you get on….
But it’s so worth it. Views like nothing else
You really need to see it to believe it, it’s spectacular. It was a beautiful clear day and you really could see for miles.
This brings me to the end of my short series of Cape Town diary blogs. Although this by no means captures my entire trip, these were some of the highlights I really wanted to share with you. If you are planning a trip to Cape Town, with or without children, and would like any tips or more information I’d love to hear from you. The food, people and general scenery is so incredible I can’t recommend it enough.
We’ve had another incredible trip and I can’t wait till next time, see you in another 2 years Cape Town ❤️
