The Western Cape Sights

Sir Lowry's Pass

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Updated 10/06/2014

Fodor's Review

To head back toward Cape Town, follow the R406 to the N2. After the town of Bot River, the road leaves the wheat fields and climbs into the mountains. It's lovely country, full of rock, fynbos, and pine forest interspersed with orchards. Sir Lowry's Pass serves as the gateway to Cape Town and the Winelands, a magnificent breach in the mountains that opens to reveal the curving expanse of False Bay, the long ridge of the peninsula, and, in the distance, Table Mountain.
