Certainly one of the best hikes in Cape Town. Do take some water and a light with after sunset.The view is spectacular!
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.
Go up either for sunrise or sunset!
Everything here is good
Climb for the sunset! Most beautiful view. Make sure you have friends and flashlights for the dark climb down:)
A peaceful and majestic place to go. The hike up Lions head took roughly 45 minutes from top to bottom. Enjoy the hike, take in the gorgeous views and definitely try catching a sunset on the top.
Amazing views but if you have a fear of heights this may not be for you!
Hiking. Challenge. Worthwhile
Early bird catches the Lion's views
Arrive for the climb, Stay for the sunset
Very busy in summer. But the view from the top is worth the crowds!
Stunning views of the Sunrise from the Summit!
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.
Great start of a day. Pack fruit and juice for a snack on top.
If you have the energy it is well worth the hike to the top. Good self challenge.
Don't forget the essentials: hat, sunscreen & water
fullmoon hikes to lions head are the best!
beware the wind. an awesome short hike in cape town. with little traffic and moderate fitness you should reach the top in 45 mins.
Organize a hike for my boys from out of town to go up Lions Head!
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.
A must do for any tourist or local that needs to be humbled!
Take a hike up here on clear full moon nights. Get to the top before the sun sets. Bring some snacks.
