Lions Head Hike

Adventure Activities, Camps Bay

Lions Head is the small “sugarloaf” peak alongside Table Mountain that looks remarkably like a lions head.

This is a very popular hike with locals who often describe it as the “best value for energy” hike in the Cape. You can be up and down in 2 - 3 hours and many will say the views are better than those of Table Mountain as you get a full 360 degree view, including Table Mountain itself.

 The route circles the peak thus giving outstanding views of all areas of the city and Table Mountain. Parts of the trail involve a little easy scrambling so it is a really fun and satisfying route for all ages.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
