About Lion's Head

A long standing tradition in Cape Town is to climb Lion’s Head at full moon. The peak forms part of a dramatic backdrop with Table Mountain to the cityscape of Cape Town.

Arm yourself with a bottle of Cape bubbly and plonk yourself down on the summit to watch the sun set over the ocean. The 360 degree views of the city and ocean are hypnotic, you won’t want to leave.

Be sure to muster up a healthy sized group – it is not advisable to hike alone.

You could also get really brave and book a tandem paraglide flight with an instructor. Lion’s Head is a popular launching site for paragliders.
