Orange-breasted sunbird on Table Mountain – Flickr pic of the day
Tomas says, “I really think Table Mountain was one of the top places to see during my visit to South Africa.
“It has wonderful scenery, extraordinary light and wonderful fauna and flora. The orange-breasted sunbird, especially the colourful males, being the peak of it!”
The Hoerikwaggo Trails (+27 21 465 8515/9) are hiking routes within Table Mountain National Park which take in the Table Mountain chain from the city centre to Cape Point. Comfortable overnight accommodation is provided at the end of a day spent exploring the area’s natural and cultural heritage.
The hikes are guided and your kit will be carried for you, leaving you free to enjoy what the Khoisan people called the Mountain of the Sea, or “Hoerikwaggo”.
