Archive of other walks along the Table Mountain Contour here.


We started at Kloof Corner like we usually do but decided to do this favourite walk the other way around for a change. We walked on Tafelberg Road to the Lower Cable Station and followed the path up under the trees.

We climbed the stone stairs, stopping to admire the flowers. There were so many... it looked like a garden!

The late afternoon light was looking moody direction Lion's Head.

Flowers! White adenandra in full bloom.


Crassula fascicularis just opening up.

And what looks like buds of serruria.

As we neared the contour path we got great views of Lion's Head.

In the other direction: Devil's Peak, the city and mountains in the distance.

Every so often the cable car travelled overhead.

We walked along the contour path towards Kloof Corner. There is just the one large tree up here, and it was beautifully silhouetted against the sky.

Looking behind us again we saw the moon had risen above Devil's Peak. Hello full moon!

We walked quickly down the Kloof Corner path, enjoying  the beautiful sunset. It was almost dark by the time we got down!
