I would highly recommend doing the sunrise hike. I went with a group and felt safer, but could be done solo. Some climbing over rocks towards the top, but you can take an easier way to avoid it. This is a must do!
This stunning hill is massive, the climb starts gently and becomes very hard towards the end. Take the right shoes, flip flops are completely inadequate!
Have plenty of water with you and check the time of sunset. It’s not at all safe to hike down...More
I am not a very sporty person, not very experienced in hiking, so for me this was quite exhausting. But it was worth it, the view is amazing! I'd recommend wearing closed shoes, no flip flops!! And take enough water with you. And suncream.
Tuesday morning on a chill Tuesday I will never ever forget where I experience my first hike on a trail on Lions Head in the city of Cape Town. The magnificent scenic views of the Mother City was mind boggling. A site and hike of...More
Its a relatively easy hike/walk that takes anyware from 45 min to 2 hours depending on fitness and how busy the mountain is. Definitely more traffic than there used to be years back, but the view from the top makes it all worth it!
What an amazing hike. If you don't feel well prepared or fit enough for the table mountain climb, this one is for you. The views will take your breath away! Be mindful that the last bit is quite steep and if you have fear of...More
A visit up Table Mountain is not complete until you have crested or submitted Lion's head. to make it fun and easy you need hiking shoes or a simple trainer and track pants, we did it when it was cloudy and misty, boy the pictures...More

Technically, no closing time. As mentioned above it is a mountain which you can hike at your own risk. If going at sunrise or sunset, remember it's dark before the sun comes up, as well as after it goes down. (Surprising I know!) So bring a torch! It is stunning at sunrise though, would highly recommend beating the sunset crowds and waking up early.
As far as timing goes, it depends upon your level of fitness honestly. I think a reasonably fit person can make it up in 45 minutes, barring in mind that's stopping for maybe 2 five minute water breaks on the way up, not really stopping for the views too much. I would at least spend ten minutes at the top enjoying the views, having a snack, and taking a rest! anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on what you want out of the hike. Although going down is "easier" it's still time consuming in the initial descent scrambling down all the rock. In total, I would recommend 2-3 hours.
Toward the end, it can get very challenging for the little ones. However you can hike up and have a great view even before it gets too steep. If your kid likes walking and some “adventure”, I saw quite a few little ones... More
