Walking Distance- Extraordinary hikes for ordinary people

The Cape Winelands Walk is one of 30 walks from all over the world selected by the authors. They conclude:

"The Cape Winelands Walk is an excellent introduction to Southern Africa, its distinctive landscape, history and culture. The walk includes impressive public nature reserves with exotic plants and animals, private lands in the form of wine estates and other agricultural areas and lively and attractive towns. Our walk left us glad we had chosen this trail - and we have a strong desire to return to this part of the world"
