I had a great time going on the Botanical Tour of Table Mountain, it was one of the highlights of my stay in Cape Town! We walked up the mountain (cable car was not running due to high winds) and it was worth all the effort of the walk up, as the guide stopped regularly on the way up to show me many of the special plants that can only be found on Table Mountain. One of the highlights were seeing and looking out for the tiny wild orchids which are at specific locations and difficult to see and find. It was mind-blowing to see them. I would totally recommend going on the Botanical tour because you 1) get to hike Table Mountain with a guide and see all the great views over the city and the peninsula and 2) you get to really appreciate the wonder of Table Mountain and the flora that is *unique* on this planet. There is no comparison to seeing these plants in the wild, have them pointed out to you, explained their speciality and significance, it makes you appreciate Cape Town and this part of world even more (more than just enjoying the magnificent views)!”
