You know you're in Cape Town when get a breathtaking view of Table Mountain. And you're right, it was named as such by early explorers who thought the mountain looked similar to a table. At times, the clouds cover the upper portion of the mountain and the clouds become the "tablecloth."
The night before leaving we decided to take the cableway up to the top. Also, there are options to hike to the top.
What wonderful views of the city!!
