Lion’s Head is a 669 m high mountain located in South Africa’s Table Mountain National Park. It serves as a symbol of Cape Town, who’s suburbs surround its base, and lends drama to its skyline, Lion’s Head provides a rich recreational resource. It offers a popular destination for hikers, especially under a full moon, and it provides a launch area for hang-gliders. The top of the mountain provides 360-degree views of the surrounding area, including Cape Town, Table Bay, and the Atlantic.
Lion’s Head takes its name from the sandstone formation at the peak, which was said to resemble a lion by 17th-century Dutch settlers. Despite its location in Cape Town, development on the mountain is strictly limited through its inclusion within a national park. Historic shrines and burials representing the Cape Malay community are found on its lower slopes.
Vegetation in Table Mountain National Park, including Lion’s Head, consists largely of the ‘fynbos’ or ‘fine brush’ characteristic of a relatively narrow belt along South Africa’s southwest coast. The park thus serves as a conversation area for the plant diversity of the ‘fynbos’ and as a habitat for the animals that thrive there.
Blues is conveniently located near the Theatre on the Bay for those wishing to combine dinner and an evening at the theatre. Open daily from 16h00 to 23h00, Blues is situated on the main coastal road from Cape Town to Bantry Bay. California-style contemporary cuisine is provided and the restaurant has an enclosed section for smokers. Pre-booking is advised (well in advance) and major credit cards are accepted.
This landmark hill stands 300m high and forms the rump of the sphinx-like lion which faces Table Mountain on the right when viewed from Cape Town. It is provides views of the Peninsula and is also popular with hikers and paragliders. Easily accessible via Kloofnek Drive which runs from the CBD, Signal Hill provides hiking options to the top of Lion's Head, the latter part of the trail having chains to assist hikers.
Signal Hill has also been home to the Noon Gun since 1902, these two cannons having previously been housed at the Castle of Good Hope and dating from approximately 1790. The Gun is fired daily at 12h00 by means of an electronic signal from the Astronomical Observatory (after the gunpowder had been loaded by a Naval Officer) and is a tradition which is more than 200 years old.
The 2-day, 26.6km Orangekloof Trail is the first phase of the 6-day Hoerikwaggo Tented Classic Trail, which includes the Silvermine Trail. This guided and portered trail is self-catering and accommodation is provided in tents made from recycled non-indigenous trees. Participants need to be 13 years or older and groups of up to 12 persons can be accommodated at a time. The tariff includes entrance fees to the Orange Kloof and Disa Gorge areas as well as the descent in the cableway.
One of only 3 such Swiss cable systems worldwide, the current cable way was installed in 1997 and has a rotating floor which offers visitors a 360 degree view as they travel between the lower cable way station and the top of Table Mountain. Each of the two cable cars transport 65 passengers at a time and takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete its journey.
Facilities at the top of Table Mountain include a 120-seater restaurant and there are a number of hiking trails which enable visitors to enjoy the indigenous fauna and flora. Hours of operation are between 08h30 and 18h00 during May to mid-September. Hours are extended for the rest of the year and details are obtainable at the website.
Serving lunch from 12h00 to 15h00 (Mon - Fri) and dinner from 19h00 to 22h00 (including Saturdays), the Showroom offers 85 covers inside plus a terrace which seats 65. The contemporary cuisine has a strong focus on fresh, local ingredients. The chef was previously at the Cape Grace Hotel and the menu, which is seasonal and changes according to the availability of fresh produce, can be viewed at the website.
