Cape Town, South Africa (map)
We originally planned 14 days to see all of South Africa with just two nights in Cape Town, but due to some inclement weather we delayed our departure from the Cape to make sure we could see the great views from atop the famous Table Mountain.
The easiest way up Table Mountain is by cable car, but that’s just another tourist attraction with long lines that cuts into our daily budget. Plus one of the main reasons we are taking this trip in our thirties versus our sixties is so we can hike the heck out of this world.
The park ranger said it takes about 2:30 hours up and a little less down, but seeing that we had been cooped up indoors due to weather the past couple days we made an exercise of it
