    One of the best hikes or walks in the world, and I've been around some! For crowd avoidance and amazing peace park at the shrine and walk from there. Unmissable!

    Must do if you are visiting Cape Town. Fairly easy hike (1-1.5 hours) and amazing views from the top.

    Be weary of going up Lions Head for the full moon if you like to hike quickly. There are often a lot more people hiking than you would expect. This does make it quite festive though.

    Can get pretty busy on weekends and around sunset. Perfect time is before sunrise.

    Go up an hour before sunset and take some snacks and a bottle of Backsberg tread lightly. See the sun set over the ocean and turn 180 and see the lights go on in town. Priceless. Take a small torch.

    Take a hike up here on clear full moon nights. Get to the top before the sun sets. Bring some snacks.
