Who are we?

Limietberg is a pristine nature reserve tucked away in the Du Toitskloof Mountains, near Paarl. The reserve stretches from Franschhoek in the south, eastwards towards Groot Drakenstein, and northwards as far as Voƫlvlei Dam and is a World Heritage Site. Limietberg offers a number of beautiful hikes through steep kloofs and deep valleys. Du Toits Peak, at 1 996m, is the highest point within the reserve. Visitors can also visit the many historical sites along the trails, including ancient rock art, a disused manganese mine and the graves of convicts who helped build the Bainskloof Pass. The reserve gets extremely hot and dry in summer, but in winter the high mountain peaks are capped with snow. Tweede Tol is a perfect spot for picnics, but to avoid disappointment we suggest you come early, as day visitors are limited to 120 people per day.
