Must do, weather permitting. Fantastic views, friendly atmosphere, remember to take a torch for the walk down.

“indeed a lion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

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.

“What's not to like?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

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.
