I’m now in Cape Town and my tour has officially ended! I can’t believe I’ve almost been in Africa for 2 months now. We’re all staying in Cape Town for a few days, but are on our own.
Yesterday we arrived around noon and the weather was perfect – sun was shining and not a cloud in the sky. Myself and another girl, Casey, really wanted to hike Table Mountain at some point. After talking to the front desk at our hostel, they said we should really do it now, as usually the top of Table Mountain gets covered in fog.
That being said, we decided to hike it! You can take a gondola up, but we wanted to get the excercise.
We took a cab to the trail head and from there, it was estimated to be 1.5 to 2 hours to the top.
The views were absolutely incredible from the top! You get a 360 degree view of Cape Town and down the peninsula. Given the top of Table Mountain is flat, they have a ton of walking trails to get different view points.
I’m here for a few more days and am excited to explore!
