This hike was amazing. A little strenuous in certain areas, but doable. The “chains” part put me off a little, so I chose the other route, but that way was more strenuous than I thought it would be. Given a chance to do it again,...More
Great hiking and doable. My tour guide Barry picked me up at the hotel, hiked up for about 1 hour 20 min (stopped for photos) and down for 1 hour. Barry carried my water, head light that I had never thought about and must have...More
The Lions head hike took about 2 hours and it was a perfect start to the day. There were some challenges near the top as you had to pull yourself up on the chains and rungs. Our guide was very helpful and showed you where...More

Reason--traffic: human and vehicles. The hike will take...More

Lions head dominates the skyline in a smaller way than Table Mountain but is equally spectacular and much more satisfying as you hike to the summit and have a sense of personal achievement. ..... It is a 1-2 hour hike and brief climb to the...More
