Walk in Africa / Lion’s Head

Lion’s Head

per person

The mountain called “The Lion” is as much a feature of Cape Town as is Table Mountain.

Although only 669 metres (2,195 ft.) in height Lion’s Head provides a wonderful walk, with plenty of scrambling (and optional chain-assisted climbing) and spectacular 360 degree views. When Table Mountain Cableway is closed for maintenance or as a result of adverse weather conditions, Lion’s Head is a reliable alternative.

Difficulty: This is an easy walk and scramble with steep sections.


Everyone walks at a different pace. The durations indicated are averages.

The temperature at the top of the mountain is lower than the temperature at the start.

We will proceed with this trip in wind and rain. Please check the weather and let us know 24 hours before the tour whether you will be coming.

Snack pack includes: bottled water, choc & peanuts/raisins

Excludes:  Gratuities, Tickets / Entry Fees
