Fire and Table Mountain
Visitors to Cape Town in early March would have witnessed the huge fire that appeared to devastate sections of the Table Mountain National Park. It burned furiously for 3 days, followed by a few days of flare ups and smaller fires.
Householders living close to the park were forced to abandon work and protect their houses while teams of firefighters worked tirelessly around the clock to protect the city.
Following the fire the journey to Cape Point involves passing passed much of the burnt land. At first sight it can appear that everything everything is dead and all that is left is a wasteland.
