Table Mountain

Table Mountain. South Africa

Table Mountain is a geological formation, believed to be over 300 million years old. It’s one of the oldest mountain ranges in existence. Its unique geography provides breathtaking views and amazing hiking opportunities for visitors. Local tribes have long held Table Mountain as sacred, and you can still experience this cultural heritage.

Table Mountain is a unique landmark in the Cape region with a long history, tracing back to the Khoisan people. The indigenous folks held it in very high spiritual and cultural regard, telling tales of how it formed when a giant was petrified to stone. When Dutch settlers arrived and named the area ‘Cape of Good Hope’, they called Table Mountain “Tafelberg” which translates as “Table Mountain”.
