Lions Head Summit



4.3km – Lions Head Summit – Hard (Hiking & Running)
5.3km – Kramat Loop – Moderate (Hiking & Running)


Vast ocean views from the mountains of the central Cape Town are special, and most experienced hikers will commonly say that it’s a magnificent hike that you must experience for yourself

To reach the Lion’s Head summit, hikers typically start from the base of the mountain and follow a well-marked trail. The hike is not as strenuous as climbing Table Mountain, but it still requires some level of fitness and caution, especially when navigating the last stretch, which involves a series of chains and ladders to help ascend a rocky section.
Once you reach the Lion’s Head summit, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning 360-degree view of Cape Town and its surroundings. Many visitors hike up to the summit to experience the sunrise or sunset, making it a popular spot for both locals and tourists. It’s a fantastic opportunity for photography, enjoying the natural beauty of the area, and taking in the cityscape from a unique perspective.

    You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really one thing which I
    feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very
    wide for me. I’m having a look forward in your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!
