Lions Head Walk
Table Mountain National Park
About Lions Head Walk
Lions Head proudly surveys Table Bay, Robben Island and the City Bowl on one side and Camps Bay on the other. The panoramic views are spectacular. It is the most awesome full moon hike – aim to summit at sunset. Remember to take your camera.
Park your vehicle on Signal Hill Road at the starting point. Most of the route is fairly easy but it is steep in places. A short scramble up a rock face via a chain ladder will get you to the top. There is an alternate route without chains but this section is still quite vertical.
Duration: 1.5 hours
Difficulty: Moderate (some rock scrambling)
Distance: 2 km one way
Warning: Take extra care on the descent if hiking after dark
