Pictures: Table Mountain Planned Burning

I woke up with the sound of choppers going mad this morning. I looked out and could see a little smoke but not the source. As the morning progressed the Cape Flats got smokier and smokier but still I couldn’t see from which direction the smoke climbed, until I drove to town. Ah ha!

On the M3 yesterday I saw a patch of Devil’s Peak that had been burnt, curious, I assumed it had been a routine test or something. Today this was confirmed.


It seems the Table Mountain National Parks are burning velt for fynbos as addressed on their FB Page!
