Lion's Head

Rising 669m above sea level, Lion's Head, a popular hiking spot, is unmistakably part of Cape Town's skyline. Driving on the N2 into the city centre, you can clearly see why it's called Lion's Head – look to your right; Signal Hill forms the rump, the space in between the body of what could be a crouching feline.

With every full moon people trek up the mountain to experience another of Cape Town's dimensions: the city by moonlight – the thousands of flickering lights create a magical atmosphere. 

During the day, one can view most of the city's suburbs on one side, and on the other is the Atlantic seaboard, with Robben Island – where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years – in the distance.

The mountain is not only a photographer's delight, but it is also a launching pad for adventure activities such as paragliding and hang-gliding.
