Donna’s Travel Tip

Explore Chapman’s Peak!

The first weekend after I arrived in Cape Town, I drove along Chapman’s Peak, which is affectionately known as “Chappies”, with my colleague Bas. It is one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world of 9 km long with 114 curves.
The drive offers you gorgeous 180° views and there are many possibilities along the route to park your car in order to take some pictures of the surrounding and to have a pick-nick.

You can choose to do Chapman’s Peak by car, motorcycle, bicycle or by foot. Along the way you can also drive towards Simon’s Town, where you will find penguins on the beach.
I would recommend you to go there in the afternoon, so you could also stop to see a beautiful sunset when you are on your way back to Cape Town.
