Lion’s Head & Signal Hill

Hiking Lionhead (2)
Table Mountain National Park_

Lion’s Head is the peak to the right of Table Mountain when facing it head on and offers a short but popular hike with 360 degree views of the Atlantic seaboard, the City and Table Mountain. A popular and new tradition in Cape Town is to hike to the top on full moon. But, while this is a memorable experience, it should only be done in groups, and led by someone with experience.

Signal Hill is the Northern-most tip of the terrestrial area of the TMNP and offers excellent views of the city and harbour. It is from here that the noon day gun marks 12:00 in Cape Town.
