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. A perfect ending to a lovely hike. Enjoy the best of Cape Town with a qualified and experienced Mountain Guide!

Hey Christine! Ah, where to begin? I can genuinely say that you were one of the most relaxing people to hike with since Path & Peak's inception. I felt super comfortable and chilled hiking with you. When I don't feel the need to fill all the moments of silence is when I know there's a good dynamic. You were also very tenacious and displayed some rather impressive climbing skills. I think you're also a first with your 3 tours booked in 2 weeks, amazing! Thanks again for being such a team player and please, please give me a shout when you're (definitely) back again. All the best, Nick :)

Hey Martin! Thanks for your kind review and apologies for the delayed reply, we've been busy, busy on the mountain! It was awesome hiking with you; we got some really cool photos and you were a cool conversation partner to have up the mountain! All the best and I hope to see both you AND Cass next time you're in CT! Cheers, Nick :)

Stunning Lion’s Head Morning Hike
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We arrived early at 5:30 meeting Nick on Signal Hill Road. Nick was great as he sent us a few messages prior to the trip confirming times, places and the plan for the tour. The Hike itself was great, Nick would often stop and explain about the nature, sights and general points of interest around Cape Town. He’s an excellent photographer and took some great shots of us both knowing exactly the best spots. This Hike is well worth it, the views of Table Mountain and the city below are amazing. I highly recommend Nick as a guide, he was friendly, charming, knowledgable and just overall and excellent guide! Thanks Nick👍🏻

We did this adventure on one of our first days in Capetown.
The guide was really nice and helpful.
He also gave us a few recommendations for our next days.
He really deserves a 5 star rating

Sunday’s done right !
I had such an amazing climb with Nick, his knowledge about the area was great and the before we knew it we were on the top,taking in the spectacular view.

Nick offered several options to climb to the head and so we opted for the adventurous route see photos attached, and yes Nick took them for me just an added bonus to the hike with Path and Peak not to mention my favourite part the mindful walking exercise connecting oneself with nature. A definite top ten in my books of things to do in Cape Town. Thanks Nick 👊🏻
