Lion's Head is arguably one of the most awesome Mountains to climb in all of South Africa. It is short and sweet and provides the most accessible and beautiful 360 degree views of Cape Town compared to Table Mountain. We start our hike at our meeting point where your Professional Mountain Guide will give a safety briefing and get everyone pumped and excited. After which we will start our hike up the most climbed Mountain in Africa stopping along the way to marvel at spectacular flora and fauna and to learn about the sprawling historical city below. Be prepared to tackle some interesting rock scrambling on the way up; Lion’s Head is small but does require a head for heights. After an exhilarating 1:30 hour hike up we will have summited and will be able to enjoy amazing views of The Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Camps Bay and the City Centre. Once everyone has enjoyed the spectacular scenery, views and got some cool Insta pictures, we will descend safely down the mountain having had a lovely adventure!

Mini Instagram photoshoot on top of The Lion? I got you :) Light low as we hike up or down the mountain? Not to stress,…
The hikes that we take you on are all special; they are steeped in interesting history and are rich in amazing flora and fauna!
最多可有8位年满8周岁的参与者参加。 Guests should ideally have prior hiking experience and a moderate level of fitness. Some hikes have slight exposure to heights and so if you have a SERIOUS fear of heights, then you may need to inquire about the hike of the day.
Good walking shoes
Lion's Head is a lot smaller than Table Mountain but this isn't a walk in the park. You need some level of fitness and a head for slight heights/ability to rock scramble. Please note this tour requires a minimum of 2 people to go ahead.
