On the right hand side of Table Mountain, behind Signal Hill, is the distinctive shaped mountain slope, Lions Head. It was originally given the name by the 17th century Dutch settlers, as it resembles a crouching lion. This proud lion overlooks the city and Table Bay on one side, and the scenic Atlantic Ocean coastline on the other.
On a clear day the views of Table Mountain are spectacular. One has a bird’s eye view of the City Centre and the surrounding beaches. It stands 669m above sea level and can take between 1-2 hours to climb. The somewhat steep walk winds its way around the Head until you reach a collection of staples and chains, there to aid your scramble up the remaining rocky faces to the top.
If you’re not feeling like a scramble, one can choose to take the slightly longer path which continues it’s way up to the summit without chains.
