The Franschhoek Pass

pass

Franschhoek Pass is also called Lambrechts Road, though – more poetically – a hundred and fifty years ago it was known as Olifantshoek (“Elephants Corner’) after the now mythical herds of elephant which once roamed these valleys and mountains. This long, steep and dramatic pass with its variety of scenery was South Africa’s first properly engineered road. During weekends city folk stream to the pass on bicycles, motorcycles, skateboards, cars and SUV’s to enjoy it’s sheer magnificence.
