Chapman's Peak Drive has spectacular scenery running alongside it and will leave you breathless. There are several spots to stop and take some photos. The toll road costs 42.00R for a normal car.

You really should not miss this. On one side you have massive majestic mountains and on the other sheer cliffs and the vast expanse and beauty of the ocean. It's difficult to believe that such natural beauty exists in reality.

Chapman´s Peak offers breathtaking views of the coastline. Passing it by bike gives you even a better possibility to enjoy the scenery

This is one of the most beautifull roads in the world. Especially during sunset. There are plenty of little parking spaces to stop and enjoy the sunset.

I would not worry. It is beautiful and spectacular, but nothing like a moutain road in terms of curves and void.

We dont plan to rent a car and wonder if busses to wine country take this route? we hoped to do a motorcycle tour or rent a motrocycle for a day but there seems to be none available when we are there nov. 12-15, 2016. Thanks for any suggestions ! \cheers Janis

Hi, there are two open top tourist buses from the Waterfront, one covers the Peninsula route but not sure if that includes Chapman's Peak. Check. Otherwise, I have only seen cars, motor cyclists and cyclist on the Peak.
