The drive over this mountain pass is a must do when in this region. Take your time and travel along the well tarred road through its many twists and turns. The scenery and vistas are magnificent. Great road to do on a motorbike or in a car.

You don’t need to make a big detour from the city but definetly worth it. Great views on the valley and very scenic drive. Reccomend!

My husband and I took the short drive up to the Franshhoek pass to see the views of the town. It was fantastic and ideal for taking photos. There are plenty of spots to pull in for a better look too. It's only a short road/drive but well worth it. Would recommend doing it one morning then you still have the rest of the day to enjoy.

The best view of the valley you’ll get. Couple of safe places to stop and take photos. If you’re lucky you’ll see the baboons!
