Lion's Head

Lion's Head

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.

Signal Hill

Signal Hill

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.
