Driving from Hermanus to Franschhoek decided to travel over this pass, more than stunning views and worth a while to drive and finally see Franshhoek laying down in the Valley, a must do drive

We love to walk/hike and Mont Rochelle was just perfect for us. The trip to Uitkyk took us just over an hour and the views were stunning. On our way back we took a trip up the Vista walk which gave us a fantastic view of Franschhoek. A great place for hikers and casual walkers.

We absolutely love this walk.. my husband proposed to me at the view point and 12 years later we went again today with the children who also loved it! We always recommend to friends coming to Franschhoek. Perfect 8.5km hike to build up an appetite for lunch in the town. No dogs allowed though

We had the pleasure of a great hike up to Breakfast rock through the mist and then along the Uitkyk trail into the morning sun. Good hiking path and the most gorgeous scenery.

We are not great wine buffs so after one day tasting various wines we were ready for something different and this was it .
You need a car to access the start as it’s quite a little distance from town . You also need a pass available from the tourist office or the ranger hut at the entrance to the park ( if no one is there you can pay on your way back) However they are able to provide you with a map showing the various routes ( for a small fee)
The trails are reasonably well marked although you do have to pay attention to follow the paint marks when you get higher up the hill
Fabulous views, superb flowers , most enjoyable day
