Hiking Trails

There are numerous hiking routes around Cape Town and surrounding areas. Lion’s Head, Table Mountains sister mountain is a great hike. Entry is free and can be done in 45 minutes (one way). Incredible 360-degree views of the city and surrounding beaches. Please be careful as there are no railings, it is steep at times and no cable car to bring you down should you wish to only climb one way. The top of the mountain has no water points therefore please ensure you stay hydrated at all times, especially in the summer heat. Lion’s head is suitable for the mid-to-fit athlete.

For the fit athlete, or the brave, I would recommend a guided Table Mountain hike. It is possible to hike yourself however I would not recommend this. Table Mountain has many routes and you may get lost.

The hike is rather steep but well worth it. You can opt for a one-way hike up or down the mountain should you wish. Pre-booking your ticket would be a must. Please ensure you take water with you and stay hydrated at all times. The hike ranges between 3 to 5 hours (depending on the route – one way)

Guided hikes can be arranged through your Concierge Desk.
