Description:

Cet the most out of this guide by taking time to familiarise yourself with the headings and terminology used, and study the information on planning and preparation for your hike, to maximise your enjoyment of the trail and avoid common hiking injuries. Given the number of walks and overnight trails in South Africa, it is not possible to include every one, and so only those of one hour and longer are listed in this guide. However, a few exceptional walks of under an hour have been included. The walks and trails in this book have been grouped into broad geographic areas. Not only are these areas commonly used in promoting tourism, but in many instances the fauna, flora, climate and geological features are essentially similar in geographical regions. In some instances, however, the geographical regions overlap with political regions. For each region a brief overview of the flora, fauna, geology, climate and other relevant aspects is given.

By reading this section you will enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of each area's natural highlights. As a general rule all day walks have been listed under the name of the attraction, conservation area (nature reserve, national park or botanical garden) or city/town where they are located. This will enable readers to locate easily walks and trails in a particular area. However, where a hike, particularly an overnight hiking trail, is well known by its own name it is listed under that name, rather than that of the nature reserve or park in which it is located. Cross-references are provided to other walks within the same conservation area. The information provided should assist you in choosing a walk or overnight trail to suit your interest, level of fitness, and the time you have available.
