Making the claim for the best view in a region famous for them, the hike to Perdekop Peak in the mountains above Franschhoek has hikers enjoying lunch while gazing at vistas that take in range after range of Cape mountains.
What to Expect
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.
