“Awe inspiring drive linking Hout Bay and Noordhoek with a winding road cut into the mountain. The views are breath-taking and the engineering achieved to build the road is a marvel. Do a round trip from Constantia, to Noordhoek with a stop at the farm village and then take time to stop for photographs on the Drive before returning via Hout Bay and Constantia Nek.”
