Exploring South Africa

Berg Lake:Berg Lake is a lake on the Robson River just below the river's source located within Mount Robson Provincial Park, at the doorstep of the north face of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.It is partly fed by the Berg Glacier.
The turquoise colored Berg Lake is dotted with icebergs even in the middle of summer.


Cable Car up Table Mountains:Table Mountain is Cape Town's icon, easily seen from almost anywhere in the Cape Town area when the distinctive flat top isn't covered in a thick layer of clouds. It is flanked by Devil's Peak to the east, Lion's head and Signal Hill to the west, and Karbonkelberg to the southwest. The top of Table Mountain is a flat-topped plateau overlooking Cape Town, and on a clear day, The Twelve Apostles standing along the Atlantic Coast are visible.
The Table Mountain Aerial Cable Way, is used by around 800,000 tourists per year and up to 65 people can fit into the rotating compartments. Yes, the floor of the cable way actually rotates so all passengers get a 360 degree aerial view of the city! How unusual it that... It takes 5-10 minutes to reach the top and when the weather is good, what a view it cant be expressed in words.
