Chapmans Peak Drive

Chapman’s Peak Drive is a road which has been blasted into the cliffside, connecting Hout Bay & Noordhoek.  It is situated on the south-western tip of Africa, just south of Cape Town on the Atlantic ocean side. The road unfolds stunning views of cliff & ocean.  The route is about 9 km long, with about 114 curves.  After a series of rockfalls, a number of measures were added to make the road safer; to finance the construction there is a toll gate on Chapman's Peak Drive (so be sure to keep some cash handy).

Leopard Rock:   This bronze statue of a Leopard was placed on its rocky pedestal in March 1963, a gift from Ivan Milford Barbeton.  The bronze leopard is in memory of the last leopard sited in the area in 1930.
