Franschhoek Pass reviews
Very beautiful view with many hiking trails nearby.
This is a beautiful drive that one should definitely do on a sunny day to be able to appreciate its beauty to the fullest! I would recommend driving with caution as there are many turns, trucks and an occasional cyclist on the road.
