Travis Davids

One of the highlights of my trip in Cape Town. I wanted to try something completely different to explore the Cape Peninsula so I rented an AC Cobra for the day which is a V8 monster! It was such a cool way to experience the scenery. A convertible makes it even more enjoyable. I started in Bo-Kaap and made my journey to Athlone to try a Gatsby for the first time which is so delicious. I then headed over to Muizenberg Beach to look at the colorful houses/huts on the beach. I made my way over to Simon's Town to look at the penguin colony on boulders beach. The next stop was quite far away where I headed to both the Cape Point and the Cape Of Good Hope (Most South Western point of the African continent). On my way back I stopped briefly at Hout Bay and then enjoyed a scenic drive on Chapman's Peak which made hiring this car the best option to experience this very scenic route. If you plan on doing a Cape Peninsula trip, hire your own vehicle and explore freely. I loved it!
