Mountains at Sea - Table Mountain to Cape Point: An Interpretive Guide to the Table Mountain National Park by John Yeld
"Mountains in the Sea - An Interpretive Guide to the Table Mountain National Park" is a new publication from SA National Parks. This comprehensive, interpretive guide will lead you through this magical world, and inspire you to explore the many extraordinary things on offer here. It's reader-friendly, easy-on-the eye, and can be tucked into a rucksack or a car's cubbyhole with ease. With over 300 full-colour photographs, this book is as beautiful as it is useful. Designed for visitors and local residents, this guide provides a wealth of information about the wonderful and occasionally weird plants and creatures that abound in the Park, and about their habitats and how they fit into the unique ecology of the area. It also details the numerous ways one can enjoy the Park and includes maps and descriptions of the 16 most popular walking routes on the mountain, and the two-day Cape of Good Hope Hiking trail. "Must see" venues such as the Table Mountain cableway, Boulders penguin colony and Cape Point are detailed, as well as where to surf, fish, dive, watch birds, eat out or just have fun in the outdoors. A fascinating history of the Cape Peninsula, and how the Park came into being, is also included, with a guide to where to find historical structures and artifacts.
