Coastal route through Cape Town, Camps Bay, Chapman's Peak, Hout Bay, Scarborough, Simons Town and Boyes' Drive to Muizenberg
One of the most spectacular roads in South Africa, Clarence drive runs along the coast from Gordon’s Bay to Rooi-Els for around 21km and features almost 80 bends.
Hermanus is a former fishing village and one of the best spots to view the Southern Right Whale in season.
Cape Agulhas is the southernmost tip of Africa and a good spot for a lunch stop on our way to Montagu
The 16 kilometer Tradouw Pass is one of the top passes in the Western Cape. Climbing through 219 meters it passes through some of the most beautiful and rugged mountain scenery on offer in the Langeberg.
Located in the little Karoo on the famous Route 62 Montagu is known for its hot mineral springs, scenic mountains and orchards. It is also a major rock climbing venue.
Hex River Pass
The Hex River pass descends 340m from Touws River to the head of the Hex River Valley. Looking out from the high altitude plateau at the northern end of the pass offers spectacular views of the Matroosberg mountains and vineyards in the valley.
Michell's pass runs through the Skurweberg & Witzenberg Mountains from Tulbagh and Wolseley through to Ceres. The scenery is wild and spectacular as the good tar road winds through sweeping curves past a number of waterfalls towards Ceres.
Bain's Kloof Pass
The iconic 27 km long Bains Kloof Pass is a national monument and links the town of Wellington to the more northern towns of Ceres and Worcester. The dramatic, northern section of the pass follows the course of the Witte River with hundreds of tight curves cut into the rock face before descending into the town Wellington with spectacular views towards Paarl and Cape Town
Our final stop of this trip at Bloubergstrand offers great views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and Robben Island - and the chance to grab a good coffee before completing the short ride into Cape Town.
