    What to Expect

    Lion's Head is arguably one of the most awesome Mountains to climb in all of South Africa. It is short and sweet and provides the most accessible and beautiful 360 degree views of Cape Town compared to Table Mountain. We start our hike at our meeting point where your Professional Mountain Guide will give a safety briefing and get everyone pumped and excited. After which we will start our hike up one of the most climbed Mountains in Africa stopping along the way to marvel at spectacular flora and fauna and to learn about the sprawling historical city below. Be prepared to tackle some interesting rock scrambling on the way up; Lion’s Head is small but does require a head for heights. After an exhilarating 1:30 hour hike up we will have summited and will be able to enjoy amazing views of The Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Camps Bay and the City Centre. Once everyone has enjoyed the spectacular scenery and fulfilled all Instagram related needs, we will descend to our Secret Sundowner location overlooking the Ocean. Here we will enjoy a chilled glass of quality South African wine whilst watching the sunset over the ocean. A perfect ending to a lovely hike. Enjoy the best of Cape Town!

    TripAdvisor somehow didn't notify Nick I scheduled this tour with him. Once he realized, he immediately made arrangements with me the same day to pick me up from my hotel. He was on time and prepared. He brought water, snacks and wine along for the hike. I am no professional

    Hands down my number 1 experience during my trip to Cape Town. The Lions Head hike is good fun on its own, but Nick provides a combination of insight, local knowledge, safety and humour that I doubt you can find elsewhere. This is a great afternoon hike where Nick creates a good
