More about Private Lion’s Head Hiking

Lion’s Head is arguably one of the most awesome Mountains to climb in all of South Africa!

It is short and sweet and provides the most accessible and beautiful 360 degree views of Cape Town compared to Table Mountain. We start our hike at our meeting point where your Professional Mountain Guide will give a safety briefing and get everyone pumped and excited.

After which we will start our hike up the most climbed Mountain in Africa stopping along the way to marvel at spectacular flora and fauna and to learn about the sprawling historical city below.

After an exhilarating 1:30 hour hike up Lion’s Head we will have summited and will be able to enjoy amazing views of The Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Camps Bay and the City Centre. Once everyone has enjoyed the spectacular scenery, views and got some cool pictures, we will descend safely down the mountain having had a lovely adventure!

Transport is complementary to the first 4 pax booked (subject to availability).

Opinions On Private Lion’s Head Hiking

What the locals say about Private Lion’s Head Hiking.


Thoroughly enjoyed our hike. Nick was amazing. From the booking to arranging everything for my family, everything was perfectly done. We hiked with our kids aged 12 and 8, which was a slight concern for me but Nick assured us that his right hand man Rob would be the guy to guide us. And Rob lived up to that and more. He was incredible. He was friendly and so knowledgeable. I will be doing this again and will be booking with Path and Peak again. Thank you Rob and Nick for arranging a bottle of bubbly (which Rob carried all the way up ). It was a superb 50th celebration.
