Lion's Head

5 saves

Recommendation by Lemi

Trek up Lion’s Head for a jaw-dropping panorama of Cape Town! The one-and-a-half-hour hike challenges with steep ascents of staples, chains, and steel ladders, but Hanli promises that you’ll be greatly rewarded with marvelous vistas of the peninsula every step of the way up the circular path towards the peak. Hanli recommends to traverse Lion’s Head at dusk to admire Cape Town’s famous sundown—just remember to bring a headlamp for your descent! On a full moon, you’ll experience the best of both worlds as the sun sets over the sea and the moon rises over the city, making for an unforgettable view.
