Hike up Lion's Head
The 1-2 hour hike up and down Lion's Head in Cape Town is an easy hike for the walking-fit. Day or after-sunset hikes give you fantastic views over Cape Town, Table Mountain, Atlantic and Camps Bay areas.
For those looking for a fantastic view and stunning photographs of Cape Town with not too much physical strain, this hike is perfect. One of the most popular hikes in the area, and rewarding almost any time of year, it is worth the 2 hours it takes to reach the peak and get back down again. Pack a picnic, bring the kids (there is an easier route around the chain-section) or schedule a walk when full moon is due for the best experience. Pack your head torches and be sure to bring something warm for the cooler months.
