Family Walks in Cape Town offers a selection of easily navigable and accessible walks that are suitable for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and wants to relax with family and friends. To compile the book, walking routes were researched and a selection was made, keeping in mind a wide range of interests, and energy and fitness levels. The walks are clustered into five local regions: Central Cape Town, Atlantic Seaboard, Southern Peninsula, Southern Suburbs and Northern Suburbs. Each walk appears on the map opposite, in the order in which you will find it in the book. If you are familiar with the walks close to where you live, why not try one further afield? Cape Town has so much natural beauty to offer. To help you plan, each walk begins with a summary box that provides the setting, the approximate time and distance and the level of effort required. The heading 'Access' indicates whether the walk is suited to wheelchairs or prams and whether dogs are permitted.
