​This video is one of a 10 part series constituting a North to South 'tour' of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa. 

With Hout Bay to the North and Noordhoek to the South, Chapmans Peak Drive is often touted as one of the most scenic drives in the World. Chapman's Peak is the name of a mountain on the western side of the Cape Peninsula, about 15 kilometres south of Cape Town, South Africa. The 9km tolled pass is built on top of a layer of granite, cut into the softer sedimentary rocks above.
