Some places were simply made for hiking - and Cape Town is one of them. A combination of a temperate climate, on-your-doorstep mountains and a sophisticated service infrastructure makes for some of the most accessible and exciting mountain hiking in the world.
And then there's Cape Town's trump card: Table Mountain.
Slap-bang in the middle of Cape Town, Table Mountain is a natural wonderland of craggy peaks, hidden forests and flower-decked valleys. Other mountain ranges course up and down the Cape Peninsula too, rolling down onto empty beaches, while a short drive out of Cape Town takes the hiker to yet more mountain ranges - wild places still haunted by leopards and eagles.
So far, so good, but I know you have some questions: where do I go? What will I see? Is it safe?
