Walk description

Our walk will start at 10:00ish (Cape Town Time) at the world-famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront: South Africa's most-visited destination. We’ll walk along the coastal promenade, through Mouille Point, Green Point, Sea Point, Clifton and on to Cape Town’s trendiest beach strip at Camps Bay. Leaving the waterfront (coffee in hand), our first way point is the Green Point stadium. Constructed for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the stadium complex has evolved into the home of many sporting events and international performances. It sits adjacent to the Green Point park and biodiversity garden, which really is an urban oasis, despite the cliché. From there we’ll join Cape Town’s famous Promenade – the City’s favourite place for runners, cyclists, dog-walkers, joggers, skaters, amblers, and everyone in between. For most of the route, the Atlantic Ocean will be on our right with the iconic Table Mountain and some pretty and vibey suburbs such as Green Point and Sea Point on our left. If we're lucky, we could see pods of dolphins and playful seals frolicking in the Atlantic. If we’re not so lucky, we’ll be battling the infamous South Easter. If anyone needs a break, the Sea Point public outdoor swimming pool is conveniently located at about the half way point. (It’s also a great location for Instagram-worthy ice cream breaks.) Once the promenade ends, we’ll make our way through upmarket Bantry Bay and Clifton, with their impressive ""cliff hanger"" houses, and on into Camps Bay, home of the rich and famous with breath-taking views of the 12 Apostles. (Depending on the tide, we may walk down the many steps to the beach when we reach Clifton and continue along the beach for the rest of the way.) We will end our walk at one of Camps Bay’s many restaurants with a much-deserved lunch and a drink or two. (While participating in another favourite Cape Town pastime - people and dog watching!) If anyone is feeling particularly energetic, they can turn a 10km into a 20km by walking back the same way.
