A challenging uphill walk with a little bit of hiking and rock climbing at the end, rewards you with spectacular views.

THe walk up was fine, about an hour, stopping for photos. The walk down in the dark with torchlight was slower and tougher on the knees.

But walking up and sitting watching the sunset over the Atlantic and then walking across the Head and sitting watching the full Moon rise was breath taking. Out of this world. Spectacular, fun filled atmosphere with largely foreign tourists.

Highly, highly recommended.

Great views, an excellent work out. Have to be OK with exposure, climbing ladders, using handholds and hanging onto chains.

At a steady pace with a knee that had surgery 5 monthes prior it took 50 minutes to the top. Great view. I had heard of Lion's Head from a mate I had played Rugby with in Toronto ... Was on my list for Cape Town.

On average if you pace it very slowly you will reach the top of lion's head in 40 minutes. This climb is very easy and can even be done during full moon. You will even have the Cape Town Traffic Department on Stand By to help with all the traffic as it is such a popular full moon activity.
