Cape Town: Sunrise & Sunset Hikes

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is a personalised small group tour where you will be collected from your accommodation with the Cape Town City Bowl or immediate surrounds by our guide and taken to the start of the hike at the bottom of Lions Head.  

    You can take the adventurous path using the staples and chains or take the easier route and avoid them. We won’t judge you!

    This hike is also very popular during full moon, grab the head torches and wind breakers and off we go for the most memorable experience of your stay in Cape Town!

    Either book for a sunrise hike, leaving early in the morning and reaching the top of Lions Head as the sun peaks out and shows off this beautiful city in all its glory - what an incredible way to start the day.  Or book a sunset hike, with your special person, and watch the sun set over the water and the colours turn from orange to red and Cape Town becomes a sea of tiny little lights!

    My husband and I had an amazing morning hike with Nick, our guide. He's super charismatic, and always made sure that we felt secure during the hike, especially during parts that were quite steep. We had a great time chatting with him about the history and culture of Cape Town

    We had an amazing sunrise hike! Our guide Frank was very knowledgable and experienced with the mountain which was especially helpful during the scramble portions at the top. Despite being winter there were a fair amount of other hikers out but it was not crowded. We were down by
