“Stunning views at night”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We visited Signal Hill at night. Stunning views over Cape Town, Robben Island and Table Mountain. Well worth the visit when in Cape Town

“If you have time”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

It's something you can easily miss if you don't spend a lot of time in Cape Town. The view is nice...

“Don't miss this view!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The best part about Signal Hill is that you can drive up to this wonderful panoramic view. With all the hiking around Lion's Head and Table Moutain, it's nice to just drive to a great viewpoint.

“Not as good as Table Mountain”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Obviously this won't be as good as Table Mountain; so if you want to do this easy drive, make sure to do it before you go for the real deal (Table Mountain). This is where the paragliders launch from, so that was cool to see.
