The drive starts in Cape Town. Backed by the Table Mountain, voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the city certainly has one of the most spectacular settings on the planet. From here the Route flows through Camps Bay,
Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak, Kmommetjie and Scarborough connection you to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Some days you’ll spot pods of whales frolicking in False Bay close to the shore or sharks breaching the water as the waves roll in at
Scarborough. The scenery is bewitching: from the bright blue expanse of False Bay framed by dark, brooding mountains, to the cute penguins at Boulder’s Beach, the dramatic shoreline of Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, and the
spectacular bends of Chapman’s Peak Drive.
To complete the loop you pass through suburbs of Simons Town, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg and then trough the leafy suburb of Constantia before researching Cape Town again. If it’s whale season, look out for whales wherever the road skirts the bay.
