Although the drive is a knuckle whitener, it is worth every second. One of the most breathtaking views in the world!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Our last day in South Africa and the weather was rotten. On a previous visit the road had been closed so it was still on the list. We decided to go and even though visibility wasn't good it was still a great experience and we had the road to ourselves so we could take it slowly and take in what we could see of the views. Well worth the trip.

“Absolutely Stunning Drive... A Must”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Our driver said there were 114 turns on this toll road that took us on our way to Cape Point. Not sure if there's another way to go, but if there is don't go that way. The views along the way are absolutely stunning. The engineering feat... building this amazing roadway in the mountain side is also an amazing thing to see.

“Well worth the trip”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Magnificent!! Easily comparable with Cabrillo Highway. Just take the trip and be astounded! As trip advisor wants me to write more also reminiscent of Hải Vân Pass.
