Just beyond the peaks of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, lies the Twelve Apostles, a range of rocky cliffs that line the coast of the Cape Peninsula. Travelers can enjoy the views during a scenic drive from Cape Town, or while relaxing on the sandy shores of Camps Bay. Grab lunch along the bustling promenade and then head to the trails, since a climb to the top of the Twelve Apostles offers an unmatched view of Clifton and the bay. Afterwards, relax with a sundowner at the Leopard Lounge, known for extensive collection of South African wines and its famous Twelve Apostles cocktail.
The hikes at Twelve Apostles are relatively easy going. It’s best to park near the corner of Kloof Nek and Tafelberg Roads and head up the trails from there.
