About this book

This book is a visual celebration that takes the reader on glorious visits to Africa's many significant mountains: the holy ones, the prominent and fabled ones, and those we see and hear of all the time. Yes, the volcanic highlands of the Drakensberg/Maluti mountains with Mont aux sources peaking at 3285m, and Kili in Tanzania at a height of 5885m. Mount Kenya is there at 5199m. But so are the Tsodilo Hills and even Mount Sinai and the Atlas Mountains (Djebel Toubkal) in Morocco at 4216m.
Table Mountain, the jewel in South African tourism, unmissable at a height of South Africa 1085m, should be featured on the title page or perhaps the back covers. It is valued by a property company recently at R78m and brings tens of thousands of visitors year by year to the Mother City.
