The “tablecloth” blanketed Table Mountain so thickly I could see for about 20 feet. It was a cool hike up anyway. Then I took the cable car down. In the afternoon I visited the South Africa Natural History Museum and strolled down to the Victoria and Albert waterfront for some great food.
Hiked from Plattekilp Gorge to the top of Table Mountain. It is well sign posted and there were many people on the trail.
In the Natural History Museum are original rock paintings by the San, or bushman, people. These were just ripped up from their origins and deposited in the museum years ago. They have no idea where these are from, because that’s the way it was done then.
The black porcupine.
The ardvark. Not easy to spot in the wild as they are nocturnal and stay in the bushes.
A caracel cat, I think.
This cat has rings on it’s tail, so it is a genet. We saw one on our night safari drive in Krueger National Park.
Another original piece of rock art by the ancient San people.
Strolling through the old Dutch gardens, originally planted to supply ships passing from Holland to the East Indies.
