This gorgeous South African postcard is, surprisingly, not from Ruhan, but from Vanetia who lives in Cape Town. We had agreed to swap only one card and imagine my surprise when I received an envelope with three cards, and that beauty was one of the extra cards. I absolutely love it, it’s definitely one of my top 10 prettiest cards. ❤

Table Mountain (Afrikaans: Tafelberg) is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. The view from the top of Table Mountain has been described as one of the most epic views in Africa.

As for the Table Mountain National Park…  Previously known as the Cape Peninsula National Park, it is a national park in Cape Town, proclaimed on 29 May 1998, for the purpose of protecting the natural environment of the Table Mountain Chain. The park contains two well-known landmarks: Table Mountain, for which the park is named; and the Cape of Good Hope, the most southwestern extremity of Africa.
