There is a city under the cloud! Winters can offer some of the most beautiful hiking in the Cape. We get wonderfully clear, windless days [...]
Lions Head is the smaller "sugar loaf" peak alongside Table Mountain. Often called the "best value for energy hike in the Cape" It offers a short (+/- 2 hour) hike with the most amazing views of Cape Town and Table Mountain. Very popular with locals it is often quite busy especially when the South Easter is pumping (strong wind blowing) and the famous Table Cloth is covering Table Mountain
Those of you who know a bit about Fynbos, the plant kingdom found on top of Table Mountain will know that fire is a natural part of the ecosystem. Without fire many of the plant species would fail to regenerate. This of course creates a bit of a problem with the city being slap bang in the middle of the plant kingdom.
