In Cape Town there are lots of mountains and if you want to climb them, you can.
Okay, climb is perhaps a little too strong a word; if you want to walk up them, you can.
At some point you do have to step over some large rocks but I managed Lion's Head in a pair of beige Benetton trousers so the south face of Mont Blanc it ain't.
Of course clambering high above the city and breathing in the fresh sea air blowing off the Atlantic is a wonderful and serene experience. It's fantastic to be at one with breathtaking beauty and nature itself.
Speaking of nature, the wildlife up the mountain is pretty impressive too...
