The Camissa River flows down the middle of Table Mountain, down Platteklip Gorge. It is fed by water that comes from the “table cloth”, the clouds that form on the front face of Hoerikwaggo (Table Mountain). The water vapour in these clouds condenses and forms water droplets on the fynbos, rocks and ground. These droplets form a stream that flows down into what we now know as the ‘City Bowl’. The Khoesan word //ammi i ssa or Camissa means place of sweet water.
