We hiked Lions Head and afterwards we decided to get a cool drink at Signal Hill and watch the sun go down. Parking available and a small pop up cafe. Guinea fowl roamed free and didn’t seem phased by the crowds.

Signal Hill does not close. It is a public road up to the parking area. But not safe alone there late at night.
