Table Mountain wildlife
We may not have the big five in the Cape Town area, but this certainly does not mean that there is a lack of wildlife on Table Mountain. Ranging from the shy klipspringer to the cheeky dassie you can be sure that while you are hiking on Table Mountain whilst you might not see them, there is a multitude of wildlife keeping an eye on you.
Here are some of the animals and signs of animals that I have seen in the past month.
The klipspringer is a small and very shy antelope that is indigenous to the mountain. A sighting is a rare and beautiful treat, but you can often find clear footprints in the sand. These fresh footprints were found on Smuts Track. I imagine the Klipspringer were very close at the time as these prints were very fresh.
