Lion’s Head information
It was the Dutch who coined the term Lion’s Head (Leeuwen Kop) for the giant, nipple-like outcrop that overlooks Sea Point and Camps Bay. It takes about 45 minutes to cover the popular 2.2km-hike from Kloof Nek to the 669m summit. There are also hiking routes up from the Sea Point side.
A lot of people do the hike as an early-morning constitutional, and it’s a local ritual to hike up and watch the sun go down on a full-moon night. The moonlight helps the walk back down, although you should always bring a torch (flashlight) and go with company.
