Gorgeous winding roads lead through over 'Lion's Rump' to Signal Hill. Take it slow and enjoy great views ... but keep your eyes on the road! Signal Hill offers unusual views of the City Bowl. Take extra camera film or a larger memory stick for your digital camera! Allow an hour to wander around. Leafy and windy Rhodes Avenue is the turnoff for Kirstenbosch and Hout Bay. Appropriately you'll find armfuls of flower-sellers by the roadside. Kirstenbosch sits on the side of the road waiting to be explored. Cars scream up and down this road, so cross (either on foot or in your vehicle) with care. Take the Kendal Road or the Ladies Mile offramp from the M3. Ladies Mile is the easier route if you are nervous about taking a gap in the traffic. Spaanschemat River Road runs through Constantia, past the pub Peddlars. Plenty of horses and riders on the pavements. You're in the Constantia Wine Route. Ou Kaapseweg has a few tight pulloff spots on its winding route that is lined with a wide range of fynbos vegetation. Civilisation greets you at Sun Valley. The Boyes Drive turnoff is apposite the Westlake Wetlands Conservation Area (a favourite for birders) in Lakeside. lf you go straight you'll hit Muizenberg. The Red Hill turnoff can be missed if you're too busy looking out to sea over the railway line. lt offers a characterful drive and altemative route to Cape Point. lt also offers magical views back along the Kalk Bay and Muizenberg Mountains. The famous naval sea dog Just Nuisance is buried on Red Hill. Along the winding road new and amazing views of the mountain open up to you, with fauna and flora (and geological secrets!) displayed on the roadside. The cable station houses the revolving cable cars that whisk you to the summit in a couple of minutes, while presenting you with awe-inspiring views. Hout Bay declared itself a 'republic' in protest during the days of Apartheid. It remains an enclave of restful souls, hippies and the well-heeled.

The road from Constantia into Hout Bay is long and winding. Locals always forget how long it is, but the mountain views and abundance of trees make up for it. The road leads through the final stretch of the Constantia Wine Route, ending at the tumoff to Ou Kaapseweg. Straight for the M3, Main Road and Boyes Drive. Take it slow on Ou Kaapseweg. The roads are steep and winding, and drivers travel fast here. Enjoy the views and take a few hours to explore Silvermine. The coastline can be seen all the way past Simons Town to Millers Point. Houses hug the coastline and are slowly edging up the mountainside. Boyes Drive opens up into Kalk Bay with its working harbour and eclectic collection of unusual shopping and eating establishments.

Great window-shopping.Quiet. Solitude. Chirping insects. lf you venture away from the Point itself you'll be delighted by the sanctity. Cape Point is the Fort Knox of the fynbos world. There are many side roads to ride, plenty of beaches to stroll along, and many hiking routes, such as the three-hour Hoek Van Bobbejaan trail. Peering over the edge gives a gull's eye view of Sea Point, Green Point and Mouille Point, while Robben Island pokes its head out of the water offshore. The road to the cablecar station is a lovely drive or challenging walk, but the views are sensa-tional. lts quite steep and sharp in parts, with some big drops. Along the winding road new and amazing views of the mountain open up to you, with fauna and flora (and geological secrets!) displayed on the roadside.

The cable station houses the revolving cable cars that whisk you to the summit in a couple of minutes, while presenting you with awe-inspiring views. The winding roads through to fiout Bay are the stuff of Sunday aftemoon drives, leading you through heavily treed plantations and steep cliffs. At the end of Rhodes Drive is Constantia Nek circle, with a great restaurant, and options of going down into Constantia Valley or through into Hout Bay. Hout Bay declared itself a 'republic' in protest during the days of Apartheid. lt remains an enclave of restful souls, hippies and the well-heeled.
The road from Constantia into Hout Bay is long and winding. Locals always forget how long it is, but the mountain views and abundance of trees make up for it. Tokai Forest offers a shadowy retreat, with more horses on the roadside, as well as all kinds of dogs taking their owners for a walk. Stick to the speed limit.

The forest ends at Tokai circle. Left forTokai suburbia, the M3, Blue Route Mall and the Main Road. Right for Steenberg golf estate, straight for Ou Kaapseweg. The road leads through the final stretch of the Constantia Wine Route, ending at the turnoff to Ou Kaapseweg. Straight for the M3, Main Road and Boyes Drive. Take it slow on Ou Kaapseweg. The roads are steep and winding, and drivers travel fast here. Enjoy the views and take a few hours to explore Silvermine. Boyes Drive is about the views! The first stretch (above Lakeside) shows off the southern suburbs, Table Mountain and the Constantiaberg. Beware of rockfalls! Boyes Drive winds through dipping and diving roads. Take it slow and be aware of concealed driveways. Don't ignore the views of the towering cliffs above you.

The coastline can be seen all the way past Simon's Town to Millers Point. Houses hug the coastline and are slowly edging up the mountainside. Boyes Drive opens up into Kalk Bay, with its working harbour and eclectic collection of unusual shopping and eating establish-ments. Great window-shopping. Fabulous views down to Simon's Town naval harbour. The road leads through to a junction: left for Cape Point, right for Scarborough and Kommetjie. lt's quite a long and bumpy road along the coast to Cape Point, but fortunately the roads are pretty good in the reserve. The modern visitors gate welcomes you. Quiet. Solitude. Chirping insects. lf you venture away from the Point itself you'll be delighted by the sanctity. Cape Point is the Fort Knox of the fynbos world. There are many side roads to ride, plenty of beaches to stroll along, and many hiking routes, such as the three-hour Hoek Van Bobbejaan trail. [...]
