This pocket-sized full-color guide book to walking in Cape Town and the Peninsula is designed for walking holidays using public transport. Although all the walks are within the reach of the average rambler, even "non-walkers" will want to stroll in and around the city, so will find the large-scale plans and maps, descriptions of the sights, and suggestions for eating out in Cape Town and surroundings useful.
The walks range from easy strolls in Cape Town itself and in Simon's Town to a rugged climb onto the Lion's Head for a stunning view. The guide includes the best walks on Table Mountain and a selection of great walks on the Cape Peninsula from Muizenberg to Cape Point.
For each suggested restaurant there is a photograph of the décor and one of their dishes, plus sample menu, price guide, opening times, and a recipe for one of their specialities.
Other sections include: planning your trip, logistics on arrival (using public transport, tourist information, shopping), local markets and specialities, glossary of local food terms, and a restaurant mini-vocabulary. A special feature is the emphasis on natural local foods suitable for those with food intolerances. All recipes have been made by the authors and are known to "work."
12 walks; 2 excursions (one by train, one by bus); large-scale plan of Cape Town; area map; lage-scale (1:35,000) topo maps for other walks. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.
