You really can’t claim to have visited Cape Town if you don’t drive/walk or ride over Chapman’s peak... It costs a fair toll each way... about Aus$5 Be patient Avoid on windy days

It is a nice drive from Houtbaai down to the Cape. I see no reason why you have to pay coservation fee for the road. Exploiting of tourists.
