I'm not sure what "alles" is doing in this sentence. Is Table Mountain telling *about* everything? Or *to* everything? It seems there ought to be a preposition here.

Does "laat" go with "in die nag"? "Late in the night they heard their voices?" Seems like an odd placement, if so.

So, although it may be tricky to understand and look weird sometimes, keep going, because that's the way you're going to learn to speak real Afrikaans (even better than many native Afrikaans speakers!), and not textbook-Afrikaans.
