Cape Point Tours, The majestic Chapman's Peak in Cape Town

From Hout Bay, we head for Chapmans Peak Drive on route to Cape Point during our tours.

Chapmans Peak Drive is arguably one of the most scenic mountain drives in the world. In the past few years major construction and building took place here to assist with the safety of vehicles using this road. One can still view the original forts and cannons left by the Dutch settlers of Cape Town. One of these forts is currently the oldest working gun battery in the world.

The western side of Chapmans Peak Drive decends sharply for many metres into the ocean. The drive connects the towns of Hout Bay and Noordhoek. Completed in the early 1920's, Chapman's Peak Drive was considered to be an engineering milestone.

Unfortunately rock falls meant that Chapmans peak had to be closed in the 1990's. A driver was killed and a lengthly court case followed. The closing of Chapmans Peak affected specifically Cape Point Tours as it is one of the highlights.

Many years of painstaking construction and safety measures was implemented into the road and today it is regarded as a safe passage way and most beautiful in Cape Town.

Chapman's Peak hosts two major event tours on an annual basis. These events are The Argus Cycle Race and Two Oceans marathon and Cape Town becomes a magnet for athletes during these times.
