My son drove and for once I could enjoy the view. Although we were going towards Elgin, the Landrover is a high vehicle and it allowed me to be able to still enjoy the view towards False Bay. It is always a pleasure to drive this dual carriageway and on a Monday afternoon there wasn't much traffic.

Being a dual lane road on a national highway it is very possible to miss the beautiful views the pass has to offer. The pass has average speed camera control ensuring people don't speed, but I would advise that you take it even slower and enjoy the views. On the Cape Town side you have the entire peninsula stretched out all the way from Somerset West to Simonstown and the Cape Town CBD. On Grabouw's side you have the beautiful forests, mountains and the Steenbras dam. There is a lookout point on Cape Town's side, but it's a bit difficult to take the turn off when going towards Grabouw so I recommend you pull off on your way back. The road quality is very good and it's dual lanes on both sides of the mountain so you hopefully won't get stuck behind a slow truck.

If you ever have the opportunity to see False Bay in all its glory, take the trip up to the Sir Lowry's Pass and stop at the viewing area at the top. It is beautiful and breathtaking and gives a different perspective of the Fairest Cape

Whilst I recognise the importance of constantly upgrading road surfaces, particularly in mountain passes, it was a little frustrating not to be able to stop and take photographs. It's a beautiful pass and with the dual carriageway open on both sides, and the roadworks over, it will be a joy travel on!
