I am Greg Jones, a consolidation loans South Africa consultant by week and adventurer by weekend. I love nothing more than being outdoors and going on adventures. I recently holidayed in Cape Town and decided to climb Table Mountain from three different starting points. I did the climbs over three days and was amazed at how – even though you are climbing the same mountain – the trails and scenery are completely different. I honestly can say that it was one of the most exciting and amazing hiking trails that I have been on.
