Know More about this tour

Of all the hikes in Cape Town, the climb up Lions Head is definitely the most popular. Only minutes from the centre of town this peak is easily accessible and a great way to get some high time if you do not have enough time to hike Table Mountain.
Situated between Table Mountain and Signal Hill, the peak provides 360-degree views of the city, Table Bay and the Atlantic seacoast and of course Table Mountain.
The hike is best in the cooler evening temperatures and warm photographic light of Sunset. It will take about an hour up and an hour down with lots of time to take pictures and enjoy the views. Your passionate and knowledgeable guide will point out iconic landmarks and talk about the history of the city as if you were a bird in the sky. You will learn about the geology, fauna and flora of this world heritage site and be inspired by footprints you leave behind.
There are a number of ladders and chains that help you to the summit. If you are afraid of heights this may be daunting. If you are up for the challenge then your guide will help you all the way.
At the summit, youll be able to take a break and look down on Table Mountain and the city of Cape Town and enjoy the light and fantastic photographic opportunity on some well known Instagram spots that your guide will show you.
Walk back an hour down into the sunset and take in views of Table Mountain illuminated by a golden sky. If youre lucky the moon might rise from the eastern mountains, further enhancing your view.
The aim is to be back by nightfall and time to have a drink some dinner and reminisce about this awesome adventure.
