For my Mom’s birthday last month, my Dad and I joined her on a spontaneous sun downer trip up Table Mountain. As locals who glance at the mountain everyday, you sometimes forget how spectacular the view from up there is.
We took advantage of the Table Mountain Sunset special where tickets are half price from 6pm onwards. Yes you romantics out there – it’s a great Valentine’s Day activity to do with your better half. Even better, if you’re South African, you get a free ticket on your birthday if you present your identity document. How kind.
It was a perfectly still evening and we enjoyed the views from various spots on the mountain. My Mom and I were extremely snap-happy as usual but how could we not?! Here are a few photos of our little Table Mountain mission. Next time I aim to hike up the mountain and take the cable car down. 🙂
It’s no wonder that Table Mountain is one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in the world!
