The lion head mountain from the camp bay is the most beautiful sight to behold. The white sandy beach of the camps bay is also so beautiful white the waves behind.

A must go for those who love trekking. View the town from the top. Experience the clouds covering you.

Cape Town is surrounded by beauty and the views are unsurpassable. Lion's Head is no exception - an easier hike up than to the Table itself, and quick to get down. It is a pity, however, that the path has become a dusty highway - the price you pay for popularity. Wear hiking boots (the road is rough), always carry enough water, and take a warm top and/or rain gear - you never know. Doing the hike at full moon is a glorious option - we didn't even need a torch to find the way down.

Beautiful views of the 12 apostles, the Atlantic seaboard, and the city bowl. Best to do on an evening where the moon will be full so as to catch the sun set and the moon rise. Better done with proper tackles and take water.

awesome views and cool climb up, moestly walking but further up you will need to do some climbing. (as in hanging from chains and metal fixtures to go up a 4.5 meter wall)


Once up it's awesome, but be sure it's not windy1
