How much exercise is enough exercise to be healthy?

Hennops hiking trail. I took the Zebra trail which is only 5km. The entry fee for this trail is R100 for adults and R50 for kids. Be sure to have cash on you as they do not have card facilities.
Modderfontein Reserve trail. This is a relatively flat trail and makes for a leisurely walk. The trails range from 10km-40km. I opted for the 10km hike. Entrance is R30 for adults and R15 for kids.
Cradle Moon hiking trail. The hiking trail that I took is 9km. The great part about this trail is that there is game on the premises and so, be ready to see impala, zebra, etc. The entrance is R20 per person.
Views from the top of Table Mountain. This is the view you get from hiking up the Platteklip Gorge trail. The entrance is free and it is a
More views from atop Table Mountain.
Table Mountain, Constantia Nek hiking trail. Most of the hiking trails in Cape Town are free. There are beautiful sites to see. It’s a steep 16km hike (going up and down the mountain) and at the top, you can take a swim in one of the dams.

This is an honourary mention for Cape Point. They have excellent hiking trails and the entrance is R85 for South African citizens. So, be sure to have your ID with you. I opted for a short walk up to the lighthouse but the hiking trails and tidal pools will make a hike worthwhile.
Supporting local entrepreneurs at the Fourways Farmers Market in the Modderfontein Reserve. The Farmer’s Market is at the end of the hiking trail and the entrance is R20.
Lion’s Head hiking trail. This hike has magnificent views and is less than 8km. To catch the sunrise in summer, I’d recommend an early start of 04:45 am. The entrance is free.
