Description: Map Guide Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa

Table Mountain is one of the most famous landmarks on the planet, and it is small wonder why. It stands as a great vertical escarpment overlooking the fairest Cape in the world, extending its seemingly protective flanks in the form of Devil's Peak on the one side and Lion's Head on the other, to cradle the city of Cape Town at the very tip of Africa, giving a panoramic picture of incomparable beauty. So stunning is this perfect mountain in this perfect setting that Table Mountain has been voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. This unique brochure is a photographically illustrated map inset with top quality photos showing the various walking routes and also a variety of pictures depicting different areas of the mountain. There is also detailed informative text on history, geography, flora, fauna, hiking descriptions, what to take on walks, emergency info and a wealth of other interesting information.
