The Garden Route offers a large number of day walks in magnificent natural surroundings. This book describes in detail 29 recommended walks in the region. An accurate map accompanies each description, together with a summary giving distance, estimated time, permits required, directions on how to get to the start and the walk's special features. The choice varies from rambles along rugged or sandy coast-lines, and paths that penetrate deep into tranquil natural forests, to trails overlooking some of the unspoilt lakes of the Wilderness area. Magnificent colour photographs, a handy 16-page flora and fauna sightings tick-list and authoritative text make "Best Walks of the Garden Route" an essential reference for anyone living in the area or planning to visit the Garden Route.
Colin Paterson-Jones' enjoyment of hiking developed from his interest in photographing South Africa's fascinating indigenous flora in its natural surroundings. His photographs have appeared in several publications and he is the accomplished author of a further two books - Cape Floral Kingdom and Beautiful Wild Flowers.
