Lions Head is between Table Mountain and Signal Hill, adjacent too the Twelve Apostles Mountian Range, in Cape town. The best thing about the Lion’s Head hike is obviously the view over Cape Town, Table Mountain, the Atlantic and Camps Bay. Although the walk can be a bit step at times, there is nothing too hectic about this hike. Along the path you will find a series of chains and ladders to assist you as you scramble up a particularly steep section of rocky faces. When walking with very young children, take the alternative route that goes around the chain- section.
Lions Head is a very popular spot among hikers when it is Full Moon and not without reason as the views over Cape Town are simply fantastic. When you decide to walk when it is full moon, please do not forget a head-torch and warm clothing as it can be chilly up there – even on a balmy summer’s eve.
