Our hikes are more than just walking! Your knowledgeable nature guide is packed full of interesting tit bits to entertain and enlighten you on your walk through nature.

We meet at the Information centre in the main road of the village. We will proceed from there to the top of the Franschhoek Pass to the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve and park at the entrance gate. We hike from there along the Uitkyk Trail to the lookout point where we will witness a spectacular view of the back gorge and the Wemmershoek Dam. After a rest and a snack or picnic, we will make our way back towards the gate.
The trail is mostly uphill on the way out and downhilll on the way back. We hike through the beautiful Fynbos vegetation and look out for baboons and other small mammals on the way. Endemic Fynbos birds will be seen and our own indigenous Protea flowers are abundant on the route. We cross over a crystal clean stream where we an refill water bottles and check out the ponds for waterlife.
I will show you the various water bodies that can be seen from up high and give you a brief history of the area and tell you all about the Fynbos which is the smallest of the 6 plant kingdoms in the world. Any other questions you may have about SA in general can also be discussed.
Other things to note
Wear a sunhat/cap, comfortable clothes, good walking shoes (no casual shoes allowed), bring a light wind jacket in case of weather change.
Bring water and snacks and extra water on very hot days.

I fell in love with Franschhoek more than a decade ago when I moved here and have done extensive research into its colourful history. I love showing it off to my guests. Steeped in history and surrounded by great beauty, the village history walk is an awesome way to learn about the area and have fun doing it!

As a registered tourist nature and culture guide, it is my absolute pleasure to spend time with our visitors, both local and from far off lands. Franschhoek is so much more than just food and wine, although we do those excellently, for sure.

It is wonderful to show our guests our fabulous natural spaces, stunning landscapes, beautiful birds and get them involved in the fun things to do in the village.

We will find the Uitkyk Viewing Point and be able to see the Wemmershoek Dam which is not visiable from anywhere else and is not open to the public. It was once our towns main water source but has since been diverted to Cape Town.

The hike goes along a path in Mt Rochelle Reserve for about 4 hours in total. The path is not steep and is quite comfortable to traverse. Robyn is an excellent guide and a nice person. We found out quite a lot about local flora and fauna during the hike. We managed to spot some rare species of flowers and birds, for a memorable experience. The views are spectacular, expecially at the end (return) point of the hike, so if you get blessed with clear weather you can shoot incredible landscape photographs.

Robyn was quick to offer alternatives, if we wanted the, due to the cloudy weather so we were able to make the best use of our time together. Very interesting and interested lady who was fun and informative to be with. And Adi the dog was a great addition to the experience. Would definitely do it again!

Great hike with Robyn, she is very knowledgeable about these mountains and we were lucky enough to see some unusual animals, baboons, lizards and woodpeckers!
