Walks with a Fat Dog by Peter & Maggie Slingsby

Brought to you by Peter and Maggie Slingsby, the same people responsible for the awesome Slingsby’s Maps, the almost 200 pages are crammed with great info for walking in the Western Cape.

It includes 60 walks, hikes, and drives in the Cederberg, the Winelands, the West Coast, the Overberg, and on the Cape Peninsula. As the name indicates, it is mainly focused on shorter walks as opposed to the hiking routes included in most guides.

The book is written in an enjoyable, conversational tone, and is filled with plenty of interesting anecdotal information about the walks, and surrounding areas. It is filled with 500 great color photos, and (of course) 50 good quality, detailed color maps.

So far I have used it to explore amongst others the Llandudno to Oude Schip route, Slangkop Lighthouse to Camp Cobra, and Sirkelsvlei.
