Activity Description

Lionshead being its own peak is a popular route for sunrise or sunset hikes. Definitely one of the shortest hikes in the nature reserve offering spectacular views, and giving a full hiking experience. If you have limited time or are just in for a shorter hike Lions head is a great peak to summit.

Arrangements

Duration3 hours 30 minutes
WhenSeven days a week, year-round, subject to availability.
WhereStart and End point: Cape Town - Lion's head depending on where we will find parking.
WeatherThe weather on table mountain can change in an instant so a light mid-layer and a rain jacket will ensure that you stay dry and warm if we find our selves in between the clouds.
What to WearWell supportive closed-toe walking shoes with good grip are a must. Cape town does experience very hot days in the summer and a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and water will be needed. A long sleeve button-up shirt with a collar provides great sun coverage.
Things to BringHiking will make you peckish so bringing a snack for the way up is always a good idea
