Activity description

Discover a new angle to Cape Town’s largest landmark on this scenic hiking tour.

A landscape that changes with every new elevation, experience the dramatic panorama of the Cape of Good Hope on this guided hike in Table Mountain National Park. Trek to the very top of the Lion’s Head and appreciate the diverse flora and fauna that makes this area so special – avoiding the crowds to ensure mind-blowing views you won’t have to queue to see…

This activity starts in central Cape Town and summits Table Mountain – exploring the National Park to Lion's Head at 669 metres above sea level. The flat-topped peaks form part of a dramatic backdrop to the city of Cape Town on a 4hour circuit.

Meet your guide in central Cape Town for this half-day hike in Table Mountain National Park. Choose to visit Table Mountain peak or Lion’s Head, on this endurance trek that starts at the very base of the mountain, travelling along scenic paths through the wild flora and fauna. Suitable for anyone of moderate physical fitness, this altitude hike to over 1,000m has a steep incline and will have you scrambling, climbing, jumping and walking through an untamed mountain terrain – stopping to catch your breath at important landmarks along the way. Summiting Table Mountain peak is one of the most popular hikes - available on an easy or more challenging route. Tackling Lion’s Head is a more scenic yet adventurous route with some small ladders and chain holds to help you as you traverse the steep escarpments. Reaching the top at 669 is your reward – offering coastal views along the Cape of Good Hope. Returning to the CBD, you can choose to walk down with your guide or take a shortcut by returning via cable car (at your own cost).

Offer three routes depending on age and ability, this endurance hike summits Table Mountain peak or Lion’s Head using marked yet steep and scenic walking trails. Suitable for active adults, this tour will include some ladder climbs and chain holds to help you on particularly difficult sections.
