SUNSET HIKE A sunset hike up Lions Head is truly beautiful. It starts at the foot of the hill and while circling the rock you reach the top in about 45min. The last part is quite the scramble with ladders and ropes. Once on top you can see Camps Bay, Table Mountain and the city centre. Enjoying the sunset with a beer and some friendsis something that shouldn’t be missed. Do the hike during a full moon and you can wait for it to rise and hike down in the moonlight. Don’t expect to be by yourself on the summit. It is quite the popular hike. Some last tips: Make sure you leave on time, because traffic can be a bitch. Also bring water, beer and a headlight.
