Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Franschhoek, in Western Cape

The Cape Winelands are perched amongst rolling mountain ranges that are sometimes stark and rugged, sometimes lush and green, but always spectacular. Franschhoek Adventures wants to share this extraordinary beauty with visitors from all over the world, and offers a number of guided mountain hikes to do just this.

There are two areas in which these unforgettable hikes can be enjoyed:

Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve

The Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve is all about celebrating the exquisite countryside of the Western Cape, where high mountains tumble into verdant valleys and wine farms stretch on for miles. The guided hikes through this reserve are very special for the views, the incredible birdlife, the scenic vegetation (including endemic fynbos), and the challenge. These routes include the:

• Uitkyk Trail (3 – 4 hours) - 6km, moderate difficulty
• Perdekraal Trail (6 – 7 hours): +- 13km, moderate difficulty
• Vista Trail (2 hours): +- 2.5km , moderate difficulty
• Du Toitskop Trail (5 hours): +-13km , moderate difficulty
• Cat’s Path Trail (4 hours, one way): 11km (one way), moderate difficulty

Transport to the nature reserve and permits are included in the rates given on the website.

Berg River Dam Conservation Area

There are hikes to suit all abilities and time frames in this scenic conservation area. This part of the Winelands is home to an impressive variety of bird species as well as a gorgeous array of fynbos. Taking an experienced guide along means getting the most out of the trails as they point out animal tracks, identify various species, and reveal a little about the history of the region. There are two hikes here:

The two-hour ramble
A shorter hike that includes permits and requires a minimum of two people.

Half day hike
Take your time in exploring the landscape. This package also includes permits and requires a minimum of two hikers.

Hikers tackling any of these trails are reminded to bring along sunscreen, water, snacks, and a light backpack with other essentials.
