  • Cliffs of Cape point expand_more
    • Explore the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Encompassing 7750 hectares of rich and varied flora along its 40 km coastline extends from Schuster's Bay in the west to Smitswinkel Bay in the east. Cape Point's headland consists of three promontories: the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Maclear, and Cape Point.

  • Chapman's Peak Drive expand_more
    • Drive along Chapman’s Peak Drive on the Atlantic Coast between Hout Bay and Noordhoek in the Cape Peninsula. This is one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. Chapman’s Peak Drive is affectionately known as “Chappies” and is a must for anyone who is passionate about the majestic scenery of Cape Town.
      False Bay is the backdrop to most of this day. It’s a world of looming crags and cliffs, mountain passes, lots of beaches (some secluded, others wide and panoramic), and an ocean full of great white sharks visiting southern right whale pods, seals, and fish, including snoek, which is popular to eat.
      On the mountain slopes, sometimes within spitting distance from homes, troops of wily Peninsula baboons roam, while kestrels, hawks, and buzzards fly in the skies above.
