THE VIEW FROM PAARL ROCK

Getaway (South Africa) - - On Track -

The road up to Paarl Rock be­comes a twisty lit­tle pass, with the loom­ing boul­ders thrillingly get­ting big­ger and big­ger as we got closer. From the first park­ing area and braai site (Mill­wa­ter), we were told it would take ‘about 10 min­utes’ to climb the rock – turns out, a sheer nearver­ti­cal walk on a rounded dome. About half­way up, lu­natics in the noon­day sun, we de­cided to try the other car park. From this ‘of­fi­cial’ Paarl Rock stop, there is a board­walk to the top – a quick two-minute walk! The views were won­der­ful, but our tum­mies were grum­bling.
