Tourists on Table Mountain – Photos
While the temperature in Cape Town’s City Bowl today is more than bearable (if you have your beanie and scarf, that is), conditions on Table Mountain were somewhat colder this afternoon. The wind-chill factor, soft, misty rain and eerie fog blanket made the experience at the summit (at 1 067m above sea level) quite different from the one down in the city, but that didn’t deter visitors to the Mother City from taking the Table Mountain Cableway up for a warm buffet lunch at Table Mountain Café and spectacular views of the Cape Peninsula; there were even a few brave souls who abseiled down the rocky outcrops of Table Mountain. Here are some images from the afternoon. Photos by Ingrid Sinclair.

Apparently it’s never too misty to abseil on Table Mountain.
