‘THE LION’
so called, refers to the formation of this group of
mountains in the Table Mountain Range,
guardian of the south-west approaches to Capetown
which lies behind the 'lion's rump'.
We are heading to our last landfall on the continent of Africa,
with the Capes, Aghulas and the Cape of Good Hope, now astern...
but getting into Capetown later that afternoon was another story!
