Sights and activities in Cape Town

Cape Town is rich in natural, cultural and cosmopolitan attractions. Scenic drives across the peninsula offer spectacular views of unspoiled beaches, interesting architecture, waterfront restaurants and the prominent Table Mountain. Below are a few notable scenic drives to take in your vehicle of choice from one of the Tempest affordable Cape Town car hire branches:


  • Cape Point – The drive to Cape Point via the Cape Peninsula National Park is arguably the most charming drive, second to Chapman’s Peak drive, to take when visiting Cape Town. The reserve hosts many species of animals and birds that are only found in South Africa. The view from the tip of the Cape Peninsula offers an exhilarating experience that is almost incomparable.


  • Hout Bay – Hout Bay, set in the bay behind Table Mountain, is an idyllic coastal valley surrounded by beautiful mountains and lush greenery. A drive to Hout Bay is pleasant and offers sights of the rustic, working harbour, the quaint houses along the side of the mountain and a sweeping stretch of ocean. Moreover, a drive to Hout Bay is incomplete without stopping for freshly caught fish and chips.


  • Chapman’s Peak – The Chapman’s Peak drive is so famous, that people from across the globe visit South Africa especially to journey along this particular route. The drive comprises curves and bends that follow the natural shape of the mountain. The winding road of Chapman’s Peak is well maintained and completely tarred, offering a smooth drive.
