Following the baboons up the road.
Just after stopping for the ostriches, we encountered a large group of Chacma baboons, which we had to slowly follow up the road to the Cape Point parking lot.

Lighthouse, Cape Point
The lighthouse at the top of Cape Point on the Cape of Good Hope. Shortly after we started up the hill, it started to pour rain. We were totally soaked by the time we made it to the top.

Chapman's Peak Drive
The thin line in the cliffs is the highway, which is very narrow, with no shoulders. One side is a mountain, the other, a sharp drop straight to the Atlantic.

Looking down the highway, as it hugs the cliffs. At some points the road is cut into the side of the cliff, with part of the mountain suspended above the roadway.

Our VW Polo Vivo, the first rental car of the trip. This little thing felt like the little engine that could trying to get over some of the hills and mountains near Cape Town.
The road along the coast to Chapman's Peak - a gorgeous drive that follows the Atlantic Ocean side of the Cape of Good Hope.
