The creatures of Table Mountain

Whether they’re scrambling up and down rocky outcrops, soaring high above your head, spreading out on a hot rock, or hiding in ponds and among shrubs, the animals of Table Mountain are all around you. Dassies are everyday; ghost frogs elusive … And in-between, there’s more rich and diverse, quintessentially Cape, wildlife.

Charity Challenge this weekend!

When 80 ambitious athletes tackle the steep and unforgiving slopes of Table Mountain on Saturday, 17 April, volunteers – working in shifts – will be waiting at the summit with water and ice in hand: a welcome relief for the participants of the 2010 Webber Wentzel Platteklip Charity Challenge.

Cableway goes even greener

Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is always striving to protect the fragile ecosystem on top of Cape Town’s most iconic attraction, and one of the major challenges is how to deal with the waste that’s generated on the summit on a daily basis.

At the beginning of March 2010, the Cableway started working with WastePlan, a company that specialises in recycling and landfill reduction – and the results have been truly remarkable!
