Drove up there today, 20-1-2015 for a picnic. Fabulous 360deg views. Great place to chill out. We would not try to get up there in anything but a 4x4.

Experience the amazing views and the beauty of nature. The road has been tarred which makes travelling a pleasure. See the sunrise with a cup of coffee and a rusk or take a picnic basket with.

I passed the viewpoint while I did the Prince Alfred Pass. What a surprise! Bring your picknick and drinks, a book or a game and enjoy the view. Don't miss it while your doing the Prince Alfred Pass.

Firstly the drive to the top of the view point is awesome, though I'd only attempt it in a 4WD! Once at the top you have the most stunning views of the area, well worth the drive!

You can see forever once you reach the point on top. Road is too bad to use anything other than a 4x4. It is worth the bumpy road. Glad we stopped here for a coffee break on our way to The Baviaanskloof.

lovely view point but a bit daunting if you don't have a 4x4. However if you make it up there it's worth the trip.
