Chapman's Peak is named after John Chapman, the Captain's mate of an English ship the Consent. The peak which looms overhead was not named after a governor or brave mountaineer, but a lowly ship's pilot.Stop At: Cape of Good Hope, Table Mountain National Park, Western CapeIt is known for its spectacular scenery. It was originally named the Cape of Storms by Portuguese explorer Bartholomew Dias in 1488. It was later renamed, by King John II of Portugal, the Cape of Good Hope because of the great optimism engendered by the opening of a sea route to India and the East.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Cape Point Nature Reserve, Cape Town Central, Western CapeThe original lighthouse was built in 1859 on Da Gama Peak, the summit of Cape Point, 238m above sea level.
