If you're driving in a standard (light-weight) car, a small toll of R42 will open up a world of views to you. The only way it could get better, is if I had wings to explore the view from above. The drive is really a...More

Accesible by car or bicycle. Not a very long drive, but the panorama is beautiful. One of my favorite things to do in Cape Town.

We took the route back from Cape Penisula through Chapman's Peal Drive back to Cape Town and the views just before sunset is simply stunning. Allocate extra time to make pit stops along the way and temperature do drop once it reaches around 4pm onwards.
