When you visit Lions Head during the day, be prepared for a challenging hike. It is fun hiking the mountain, but when you get closer to the top it gets steep and some moments might be a bit dangerous. When we reached top we could...More

An interesting shaped mountain in the form of a lion, easy climbing to the top and spectacular views of Camps Bay, Cape Town and surrounds

Beautiful. Parking and food truck at the start. Tough first 1km. You must push through to the very top. Magical Cape Town!

A tiny bit challenging (if you don't like heights). Spectacular 360 degree views of Capetown. Worth every minute!

The views from the Lion's Head are fantastic and there are a number of trails you can take if you like to hike.

A hill in the Table mountain's vicinity which is shaped like a lion lying on its belly (when viewed from the Camps bay area) is a stunner! Hike up this hill to get stunning sunrise and sunset views

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
