The Table Mountain National Park, with its beautiful mountains and beaches, stretches from the historic Signal Hill to the rugged Cape Point. As world heritage sites are concerned, the Cape Floristic Region is one of the most immediately striking in the entire world. The park is surrounded entirely by a City and for this reason, it is fragmented by urban development and privately owned land.
