Cape Peninsula Hikers

Pocket Guides


The Cape Peninsula Hikers Pocket Guides is a collection of walking guides focusing on the major summits on Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula, including the best route

to take.

What makes these guides unique is each guide fits comfortably into your pocket and is housed in a waterproof sleeve. Every guide only focuses on the route you are taking: “one route, one guide”.

Instead of carrying a large book up the mountain, with hundreds of route descriptions that are not relevant for your day’s walk and, by design, have less information about each route, instead carry only the information you need and more of it.

You will not find a more comprehensive guide focusing individually on each route and summit anywhere. The author has painstakingly gathered the history of each route, the specific geology of every hike, relevant flora and fauna information and, more importantly, an accurate description of the route, photographs, a 3D illustration map of the route with all the essential twists and turns on your journey to the summit. All the routes are correctly graded for safety and exposed and dangerous areas on the walks are highlighted.

The first 10 summit guides are Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Devil’s Peak, Belle Ombre, Elsie’s Peak, Little Lion’s Head, Castle Rock, Lower Steenberg, Swartkop and Chapman’s Peak. Twenty more summit guides are being compiled and will all be published by the end of 2022.
