Klein Hangklip – near Cape Town, March 2013

As you drive from Cape Town towards Hermanus, you coulod take the direct route via the double lane N2 freeway, which runs a little bit away from the coast and then turn off when you reach the Hermanus off-ramp.  But if you have a little more time, take the coastal road that meanders from Somerset West all along the False Bay coast to Hermanus, hugging the spectacular Kogelberg range of mountains just metres from the sea.  One of the villages you will pass through is the tiny settlement of Rooiels (Red Alder) which sits nestled comfotrably between the cobalt blue of the Indian Ocean and the granite mass of Klein Hangklip (“Small Hanging Rock”).

Lovely view! We drove that way last weekend to Grootbos – it was the first time I’d driven that route and a beautiful day. So nice to go off exploring again.

Aaah – so glad to hear you took the same route! I had never driven it before either – what a fantastic road! And I don’t think in the end it took much longer than the N2 anyway…

Cobalt yes cobalt is exactly the word to describe the color of this deep and awesome water.
Beautiful!

How magnificent! I’ve been reading more books set in South Africa this past year, and I am aching to visit. :-)
