Walking Cape Town – A Book Review

Last week I was browsing the travel guides at the bookstore when this book caught my eye.  I loved it and decided to share it with you.

Walking Cape Town by John Muir

We love visiting Cape Town. It is a 4-hour drive from Mossel Bay and we have family there.  It is perfect for a weekend.  And with the information in this book I see many weekends exploring Cape Town and surrounding areas.
Table Mountain (2009)
The book has 24 easy walks and 9 drives around this beautiful city.  Each walk has a detailed map, useful information, refreshment suggestions and information about the sites along the route.  There are distance vary between 2 km and 6 km.  But for a longer walk I would do some of them together (like the 2-km Company gardens and the 2-km Queen Victoria Street walk)
Castle of Good Hope (2005)
The book is easy to read and follow with a good amount of pictures and interesting facts about the historical sites in the city.  It is perfect for locals and visitors who want to discover the history of the city. 
I am excited to do the walks in the city.  My last visit was in 2009 when I went to the Company Gardens and South African Museum.  And then I would love to do the 6-km Simon’s Town walk with 43 historical sites. 

This is not a sponsored post.
I bought Walking Cape Town at our local Wordsworth Bookstore.


  1. I have a book with Cape Town walks, but I think I should look into perhaps getting me this one as well.

  2. With its majestic Table Mountain backdrop, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
