It's another landmark you cannot miss. The nature is beautiful. The walk takes about 90 minutes to reach the top. Carry enough water when walking

Taking the night bus tour, which is free if you bought the 2-day pass, head up to signal hill for cracking views over cape town, table mountain and lions head - remember your picnic but if you're lucky the man with a van with a real expresso/cappucino machine in the back will serve you a good coffee.

Loved everything about Lions Head, no better place to view the Sunset and amazing views of Table Mountain. We met a local artist and bought one of his paintings. So many happy memories of our times in South Africa, we can't keep away.

An excellent hike up the Mt. Amazing views all around. Bring some water because you will need it. The trail is well marked and challenging to a novise hiker. It proved much more difficult then I had thought which is why I enjoyed the hike so much.

It takes quite a while to climb it and I did not go all the way to the top as I am scared of hights and the trail gets very steep towards the end. But it is worth it to go there just for the view as you can see everything from there.
