Lion’s Head

Lion’s Head now closed for almost 6 weeks of maintenance (Signal Hill to remain open)

The ever-popular Lion’s Head will be closing today for some much-needed maintenance.

South African National Parks (SANParks) confirmed the trail will be closed entirely to Table Mountain National Park visitors from 7 January 2019 to 15 February 2019. Signal Hill will remain open to the public during this time as a viewing point. 

Full closure is required for the successful completion of this “much needed intervention’ on the popular spiral trail up to the summit, says SANParks.


Dear hiking friends, it is tradition amongst the locals to hike up Lions Head at full moon.  Pick up from your hotel will be 2 hours prior to sunset.

You take a comfortable hike up to the top and enjoy the sunset, followed by a full moon. Enjoy a drink and snack, before you make your way down again.

Your experienced hiking guide will pick you up from your hotel and drop you off afterwards.

Lion’s Head Hike

Difficulty: A+ ( easy – difficult )
Duration: +- 3-4 hours

This stunning hike is known for its panoramic view. We start with an easy walk and as the path winds
its way up to the top, it becomes more challenging. Your love for hights and your confidence are a requirement to enjoy this poplar walk. This spectacular 360 degree view quickly lets you forget the exhausting part of the hike.
