The City of The Mountain: Cape Town, South Africa

There is perhaps no more dramatic a city than Cape Town, South Africa. Rising out of the clotted fogs of the western cape like a lurking leviathan, stands the iconic Table mountain. Endemic flora and wildlife live side by side with a bustling metropolis, where life fights for it’s small piece of land under the mountain or along the spiny Cape Point Peninsula. In such a place, a thriving city burns with a furious energy.

If South Africa had a coffee table book of quintessence, the three things that would fight for the cover would be the biological wonders of Kruger National Park, the iconic beauty of Table Mountain, and the quiet, hulking giant of the Drakensberg Amphitheater, home to the second tallest waterfall on Earth, and the Tugela River Gorge.
