Hiking in Cape Town, South Africa

Sep. 1st to Oct. 30th, 2023, I was working remotely for two months in Cape Town, South Africa. Bordering the city is Table Mountain National Park which stretches from Cape Town in the north to Cape of Good Hope in the south. The park includes the iconic Table Mountain (1,086 m) overlooking the city and many beautiful hiking trails. I did nine hikes there (total distance 64 km) with a lovely group of traveling friends. Here are some photos and routes.
