The Answer:
Table Mountain
Cape Town, South Africa

With near-vertical cliffs and a flat-topped summit at over 3,300 feet high, Table Mountain forms a dramatic backdrop to the city of Cape Town. The clouds that often form on top of the mountain are known colloquially as the “tablecloth.”

Visitors to this unique landform will get to experience the mountain’s unusually rich biodiversity. Lucky walkers may encounter species like the dassie, or rock hyrax, which was once the most common mammal on the mountain but is now becoming increasingly rare, or the Table Mountain ghost frog, which only exists in this unique environment.
