Offering both Table Mountain hike and Lion’s Head hike as part of our Cape Town tours.

The Table Top rises nearly straight from the Atlantic Ocean, while Lion’s Head Cape Town is a centerpiece to the city sightseeing in the Mother City.

Being a guided hiking company offering Cape Town hiking tours, lionsheadhike.com has seen a fair amount of media coverage over the years about dangerous or fatal situations. People have been mugged on Lion’s Head and there have been reported deaths on Table Moutain.  The mountain in all its media coverage has a past, witnessing the rise and fall of an ocean, the roaming of the creatures of the earth from the time of the dinosaurs. The weather in Cape Town with its countless storms have worn the two mountains right down, while Lion’s Head height used to stand much taller millions of years ago, however, still, this crumbling shaped animal of a mountain beams with abundant life and energy. The Table Top has also gotten smaller with the passing of days, the rock type has made Table Mountain height lower than previously thought, making this 1-kilometer high mountain an even closer distance to Cape Town.

Lion’s Head is a place where one will hear the white noise of complete silence. This stillness might now and then be shaken by sounds far and near like the chirping of birds, the squeaking sound of a dassie and the distant chime of a church bell, the muffled roars of Camps Bay Beach waves crashing, the horn honks coming from Signal Hill or the music coming from one of Clifton’s beach parties. The Lion’s Head hike trail also overlooks other Table Mountain routes including the popular Platteklip Gorge hike, India Venster hike – on the other side of Table Mountain is Kirstenbosch Gardens. The botanical gardens with its many hiking trails are located on the back face of Table Mountian National Park map. That’s a part of the magic of Table Mountain National Park and Lion’s Head mountain. What’s more, all sides of Table Mountain including the Lion’s Head mountain range has its own character: north facing rock high over the Cape Town, is stacked with low bushes, sparsely vegetated due to soil and rain conditions, and sun-baked; there is another side to Table Mountain where Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is situated on the lush eastern side, a native forest with lots of tropical jungle near the beautiful Constantia and Newlands areas. The side directionally toward Cape of Good Hope is called the Twelve Apostles, dissected into a series of 12 peaks while commanding an ocean towards Boulders Beach. Then there’s the rear city slicker side, a mildly forested area and the secluded valley where Platteklip Gorge trail makes civilization feel one thousand miles away.

One of the foremost wonderful things about Lion’s Head mountain is the very fact that it is part of Table Mountain National Park. There is the natural element of wildness despite the close proximity to Cape Town city.

There are places where you may pitch a tent to go Lion’s Head and Table Mountain camping for years at a time while not making contact with another hiker; a place where you’d only hear the birds and bees without interruption except for the days when the weather in Cape Town gets loud, like thunder. Pockets of pre-civilization on Lion’s Head still exist, these places of undeveloped solitude remain out of sight and hearing from all Cape Town accommodation. All this but four kilometers (2.5 miles) from the city center… traffic jams on Signal Hill Road and shopping malls Including the well-known Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
