2 Reviews
ToursNature & PanoramaOutdoor SportsViewing PointsSunrise ToursOutdoor ActivitiesMedium-risk activities

Enjoy fantastic views of Cape Town on a hike to Lion's Head in the morning or evening.


  • Enjoy a spectacular view over the entire city of Cape Town
  • See the sparkling coastline along the Atlantic coast
  • Witness the beauty of the city in the early morning or dusk


Meet your guide at Signal Hill Road. Once there, decide whether or not you want to go up the route that includes a short, difficult scramble up a rocky area with the assistance of fixed chains and steel steps, or to take an alternative route. Bear in mind that the former option will require you to have a fairly good head for heights and at least a moderate level of physical fitness.  Afterwards, begin the hike and enjoy the well-earned views of the beautiful Mother City and its surroundings. At the summit, enjoy 360-degree views of Robben Island, The Twelve Apostles, and the sparkling coastline along the Atlantic seaboard. Once you've admired the beauty of the landscape and taken your pictures, be escorted back to the meeting point where the tour ends.
