Sunrise hike on Lions Head
When the alarm clock goes off well before it starts to get light it is easy to wonder why on earth you thought it would be a good idea to do a hike before breakfast. However only 5 minutes into the hike and you will know exactly why it was a fantastic idea and one you will be keen to repeat.
Lions Head in Cape Town is the perfect sunrise hike. Often called “the best value for energy” hike in the Cape you can be at the top in an hour and even if you start a little later the 2nd half of the hike has clear views to the East so you won’t miss out.
The first half of the hike winds around the peak so you get amazing night time city views followed by night time sea views.
