Chapmans Peak - Review

Chapman's Peak is the name of a mountain on the western side of the Cape Peninsula. The drive to it is quite scenic and a must do while in Cape Town. The drive itself is worth it but there is a lot to do in this area too.

Close to the blue shoreline, Chapman’s peak is a picturesque place to go to. Photographers, adventurers, health freaks and nature lovers alike are bound to love this place. The activities that can be done here include fishing, cycling, running, whale watching, water sports and many more. As a part of the Silvermine Natural Reserve it is also a haven for budding ornithologists who would love to explore the bird life in the area.

The views from atop the peak are stunning to say the least. It is a good idea to take the drive on a weekday as the place will certainly be crowded on the weekends.

Chapmans Peak, Cape Town Reviews

  • The views from the top are breathtaking. You can see everything and get perfect shots of sunsets. The only downside is the amount of cars. Getting up and down is chaos. There is so many cars and sitting in traffic is a guarantee. But the view from the top is worth the wait, that's why there's so many cars to begin with.

  • An absolutely amazing experience on the mountain side with a stunning view of Hout Bay. At night, the area and drive seems other worldly

  • Alway a exciting trip, first time since 1980, renovations world class!!!

  • Small town next to Simon's Town,if I'm not mistaken,that place is surrounded by mountains

  • Beautiful place but very poor service. We went to the viewpoint at 19:53. When we left at 20:20 we were not allowed to leave because they demanded a payment of R45. They said we had overstayed our time. We should have been informed by the cashier at the entrance that there was a penalty for exiting after 20:00 so we would have been prepared. As it was we had gone unprepared and our visitor from out of town had to fork out the last bit of money she had. Very unprofessional behaviour of the cashiers and their supervisor.
