This pocket-sized full-colour 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. 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, shopping for self-catering (including health food shops), local markets and specialities, glossary of local food terms, etc. 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’.
Cape Town, a dynamic, modern, cosmopolitan city, is well-blessed for walkers, with Table Mountain and Lion’s Head on its doorstep, and the rugged Cape Peninsula just a short trip away by public transport. With excellent restaurants, glorious weather most of the year, and daily flights from major airports, it makes a perfect holiday destination.This guide contains enough walks, excursions, restaurants and recipes to occupy most of two weeks, so you can chose whichever appeal to you most.
