My friend Darryn (aka “the man who wins EVERYTHING”) won a sunset ride up to the top of Table Mountain for him and 9 friends. The prize also included free food and drinks. Yeah baby!
For those who haven’t been up there in a while (or ever), they have a relatively new loungy spot up there now where you can enjoy some cocktails and snacks while taking in the best view in town.
This is where they hosted us for the evenning. Check out the killer spread that was waiting there for us:
We headed up at 6pm, thus giving us lots of time to enjoy the sunset. This was my winning shot for the day:
And then there was one lonesome dassie who came out to say hello:
To work off all the snacks, we decided to walk the tabletop and do a bit of exploring. I loved how the light kept changing as we moved over the different sides of the mountain:
So how much does it cost to make your way up to the top these days? (for those not brave enough for the hike) Well an adult return ticket usually costs R195. If you book online however, you’ll save R20 and only pay R175.
BUT… even better is getting yourself a Cable Card for R490 and then you have free access to the mountain for an entire year! Yes, that’s right – you could go up there every single day if you wanted. That’s pretty sweet, especially now that the world has acknowledged our beautiful mountain as one of the New7Wonders of Nature. So make a plan people and get your asses up there.
