The Tablemountain, 1.087m is one of the most impressive and charateristic landmarks in the world. The flat-shaped mountain is flanked by the Devils Peak, 1.002m and the Lion´s Head, 669 m. The Lion´s Head is the lowest in this triology, but anyhow this triangle shaped mountain is a very spectacular viewpoint offering a marvellous view over the city of Capetown, Sea Point, Robben Island, Devils Peak and last but not least the entire Table Mountain massive. The Lion´s Head is not connected with any cablecars as the Table Mountain but nervertheless has a big numbers of visitors all around the year thanks to it´s easy acsess.
Follow the road towards Signal Hill. From there several small paths are leading up against the slopes of the Lion´s Head. At the foot of the mountain the small path continous around in a circle, some fix ropes are set up to secure exposed parts. Up on the top there is a big signal people like to “climb”. Enjoy the marvellous view which combines the Table Mountain chain, a fantastic flora and fauna and the spectacular sight of two oceans meeting!
