Full-Day Franschhoek Cape Fold Mountain Hike from Cape
Set in a private reserve of great craggy mountains, the trail is a straight-forward walk up. It’s steep at first but flattens out soon enough. The fynbos vegetation is both pristine and diverse, and mountain antelope, baboons, ravens and even black eagles are often seen. Approaching the summit, the alpine grassland gives way to a rocky peak from which most of the south-west Cape can be seen – even as far as Table Mountain. As further reward, it’s an easy-angled walk down via a path that throws up huge views at every turn.
