Later, you will continue your drive through Chapman’s Peak, a 10-kilometers stretch blasted into the partially vertical rock which is considered as one of the most spectacular coastal roads in South Africa. It starts at Hout Bay and winds up to Chapman’s Point, revealing breathtaking views of the sandy bays down below when the road reaches sea level again in Noordhoek.

Afterward, you will visit The Cape Peninsula National Park to admire the beautiful coastal scenery, beaches, diverse plant and animal life, shipwrecks, and dramatic mountains. Wildlife in the reserve includes baboons, all sorts of buck, and wild cats. There is also an abundance of birdlife including ostriches and flamingos.

The park is the smallest of the world’s six floral kingdoms and has one of the highest concentrations of different plant species, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. The special vegetation of the region is called “fynbos” and includes Protea, one of South Africa’s national flowers.

You will reach Cape Point and use a funicular that leads up to the historic lighthouses that were built at the end of the Point. It is a stunning place to look out over the cliffs, rocks, and endless sea. The sight of huge waves crashing into the rocks is really spectacular. In the afternoon, you will return to Cape Town along Eastern coast and old colonial resorts of Muizenberg and Simonstown.

You will also stop at Boulders Beach with a large breeding colony of Jackass penguins. These endearing little creatures nest just above the beaches along the coast, so you can experience an encounter with some of them while sunbathing or swimming anywhere along Simon’s Town’s coast.

Day 6: Panorama Route (490 kilometers)

There will be a departure towards the picturesque Panorama Route, offering one of the most stunning sceneries of the surrounding area. Your first stop will be God’s Window, which owns its name to the dramatic views from various viewpoints overlooking the almost sheer 300-meter drop into an indigenous forest-clad ravine.

Afterward, you will continue north to see Bourke’s Luck Potholes, that have been carved out by water and stone falling down into Blyde River resulting in spectacular cylinders (up to six meters deep) with smooth and colorful rims. This natural feature marks the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world, which is well known for its natural beauty and diversity of flora and fauna.

Nearby, you will visit another highlight of the scenic drive, Three Rondavels, three hut-shaped rock formations. On your way back, you will also stop at Lisbon Falls, which is the highest waterfalls in the area.

At the end of the journey, you will have a break in Pilgrim’s Rest, a little charming town that was founded after the discovery of gold in the stream flowing through the valley. The present Pilgrim’s Rest is like a living museum, preserved in the exact style of the gold rush period with many buildings unchanged for more than a century.
