Lions Head Hike


Towering 669 meters above Cape Town, around 600 million years old, Lion’s Head is the distinctively shaped mountain slope sitting adjacent to the infamous Table Mountain. This easy to moderate route winds up and round Lions head with a few chains and ladders to negotiate along the way. At the summit you will enjoy a 360° panoramic view of Cape Town's City Bowl, Table Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard with its flashy neighbourhoods of Clifton and Camps Bay. This crouching lion shaped mountain with the sandstone peak as its head is undoubtedly a “must do” when visiting Cape Town.
