Table Mountain: (1086m) This distinctive sandstone mountain is flanked by Devil’ s Peak and Lion’s Head, and has greatly influenced the development of the city. A cable station from its lower slopes above the city to its peak (weather permitting) gives the visitor a remarkable panoramic view of the whole Cape Peninsula. The slopes are also home to mountain goats, and dassies(Rock Hyrax).
Cape Point: Whilst it is not the most southerly point on the African continent (Cape Agulhas 170km further east), the point is recognized as one of the great landmarks of the world, and where the eastward pressure from the warm Moçambique current keeps the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean from travelling eastwards. Most of this section of coastline is included in the Cape Point Nature Reserve.
