Wonderful views! I would recommend doing this route before 9am, so that you can avoid touristic buses. If you are not used to driving on the right hand side, during high season it may be a good idea to hire a driver, since the road...More

This a lovely relaxed drive along the cliffs of Cape Town - you will experience views like no other. Be sure to catch a sunset for an even more amazing drive.

We drove both ways just before sunset and the views are truly special. Unfortunately there is not much opportunities to stop along the way, so just drive and enjoy.

This is a beautiful drive--like the Amalfi Coast. Well worth taking if you're considering driving down the Cape Peninsula, with some stops on this drive to take photos. So beautiful if it's a sunny day, and the roads are dry!

This route is arguably one of the most beautiful routes to drive in the Western Cape. The route meanders along the cliff-face between Houtbay and Noordhoek and has a toll-fee of R 47.00 per car (subject to change). There are numerous viewing points and picnic...More

A winding drive that runs along the mountain with stellar views of the coast and nearby towns. Plenty of photo opportunities and generally a great route to take towards Noordhoek/Fish Hoek. Toll was R40+ for a regular sedan.

Picturesque drive along the coast. Just be minded that the Peak closes every day at sunset which limits the time for visits unfortunately. The toll road on the way costs R47 and you can only pay with cash or SA bank card.

The botanical garden can take all day to visit. If you want to also visit Chapman Peak you probably will need to visit the garden for only 1/2 day to leave you enough time for both but is it feasible. I see many current... More
