The body of the book contains seven day-tours in and around Cape Town. Each tour is accompanied by a full-colour map covering the recommended itinerary. Following the day routes are six specialist itineraries further afield – comprising the West Coast and Namaqualand, Southern Cape Coast, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, and the Garden Route. More than 200 colour photographs, including aerials, accompany authoritative text that covers historical background, useful facts and engaging anecdotal information. A handy directory listing covers shopping, nightlife, cuisine and events, giving useful names, addresses, and relevant additional information.
