Definitely worth a drive up to the Paarl Nature Reservation, when visiting Paarl. The whole area is over 50 sq kilometers. The views are astonishing to all sides, see Table Mountain, Stellenbosch and the Paarl Valley along the Berg River. Why not bring a picnic?

Whilst this is probably one of the scariest drives I have ever done, the view up there is amazing. The park like surrounds are very welcoming, with bbqs and amenities which were very clean. Funny sign saying no music. You can hike around the mountain...More

The milk tart was so bad our guest could finish it, otherwise everything else was very good. The scenery is magical.

Keep driving up the dirt road to get to car park and ranger station. You can continue driving if you’re feeling lazy or walk the 2.4km to the bottom of Bretagne Rock. We walked and thoroughly enjoyed it. It took about an hour from the...More

Never been before but loved it! We always stay in Franschhoek but never been into this reserve. Great walking area, with some marked pathways- just follow the white footsteps. Free parking during the week but remember some water as no cafe or little shop.

Great hikes varying from easy to difficult.Be prepared with water and good walking shoes and preferably a map from the area. As this map is not available in the museum. You can make pictures from the map in the museum to help you around.

We climbed the dirt roads up through Paarl Mountain Nature Preserve to visit Pearl Rock and do some rock climbing. It was a week day, so we had the place to ourselves. The views are great and the rock is very accessible.

Hello, we didn't stay in Paarl but I would be amazed if there was nowhere to hire bikes there. A bike hire place can be found in Franschoek on the main street (if you have a car with a bike rack).
