What you can expect
Lion's Head is arguably one of the most awesome Mountains to climb in all of South Africa. It is short and sweet and provides the most accessible and beautiful 360 degree views of Cape Town compared to Table Mountain. The hike starts at the base of the Mountain where your Professional Mountain Guide will give a safety briefing and get everyone pumped and excited. After which we make our way up one of the most climbed Mountains in Africa stopping along the way to marvel at spectacular flora and fauna and to learn about the sprawling historical city below. Be prepared to tackle some interesting rock scrambling on the way up; Lion’s Head is small but does require a head for heights.
After an exhilarating hour and a half hike up we will have summited and will be able to enjoy amazing views of The Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Camps Bay and the City Centre. On the summit there will be some free time to enjoy the views and fully appreciate the surroundings, and your guide will be more than happy to take pictures for you, showing off all the best spots. Once everyone has enjoyed the spectacular scenery and captured any and all photos, we will descend to our Secret Sundowner location overlooking the Ocean. Here enjoy a chilled glass of quality South African wine, a tasty South African snack and enjoy watching the sunset over the ocean. A perfect ending to a lovely hike. Enjoy the best of Cape Town with us.
Note: This tour of Lion's Head is for the traveller who wishes to slow down and fully appreciate the natural surroundings; the flora, fauna and history. It is intimate and personal and focuses on immersion and learning about the Mountain, Cape Town and South Africa. As guides, we truly care about the quality of the tour and guests having a true and authentic experience. There is ample time for photography, flower and wildlife observation and simply becoming quiet and still in nature. Cohesion and community are also very important factors and a big effort is made, on the part of the guide, to promote a good energy, vibe and the chance to make long lasting friendships.
