Cape Town Road Trip: Chapman’s Peak Drive [360-Degree Panorama]

There are certain parts of the world that simply cry out: Road Trip! You know the requisite ingredients: rugged cliffs dropping into blue ocean waters, waves crashing against rocky outcroppings, and pockets of white foam shooting into the air. Roads wind, barely two lanes wide, cars hug mountain turns. Drivers and passengers crane their necks to catch a glimpse — the glimpse — over the next cliff, wanting to pull off for the perfect photo.

The whole thing sounds cliché, perhaps, but maybe that’s just because that’s the way it really is. There are a few drives in this world that deliver on all of this. And Chapman’s Peak Drive in Cape Town happens to be one of them.

So, grab a spot that catches the rays of the sun, turn on a fan and direct the breeze to your face, open the panorama below to full screen and take a spin around. Then you’ll get a taste of cruising Chapman’s Peak Drive with the window down. Enjoy!

    @Oliver: Thanks! A few of the other places in the world that screamed Road Trip! like this include California’s northern coast (Route 1), Cinque Terre, and parts of New Zealand’s South Island. Know there are more to discover though!
