Remarkable Sunset Hike on Lion’s Head

Cape Town, South Africa

Experience hosted by Irmina

What you'll do

Take an unforgettable hike up Lion's Head that will end with the sun setting into the ocean and a glass of wine on the top as we soak up an incredible view of Cape Town.

Lion's Head holds several secret routes that avoid the crowds that frequent the mountain. The moderately challenging route with some exposed scrambles that leads through the "nose" of the lion would be our first recommendation, but we are happy to adjust the experience based on your preferences and physical condition. We will also happily refund your money if you are not satisfied.
Other things to note
The meeting point is at the start of one of the trails up Lion's Head. Please refer to the direct message for the exact location.
Please note we speak English, Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, and Afrikaans.

I choose to live in Cape Town as, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world to live. I love cycling, hiking, and all sorts of outdoor adventures, and I would love to share my love for the city, passion for exploration, and amazing experiences with anyone who is keen to try something new. I have been arranging travel adventures to hidden spots for friends and guests for over 12 years, partnering with Marius, an experienced local guide, as one of the guests once commented, we are passionate about arranging trips "that money can't buy."

This was awesome. Such a unique experience and Marius is a great guide who really took us on a challenging route off the regular tourist trap path. I met some cool people, got to enjoy the sunset and snacks at the top and took a beautiful night descent back down. Maurius even gave me a ride home which was much appreciated. I'll definitely be booking another hike with these guys.

Our sunset hike with Marius was incredible! He personalized the route based on what we were comfortable with and he knew what pace to keep to make it in time for sunset. The views were STUNNING and the little picnic at the top was so thoughtful. (The nighttime city views before heading down was the cherry on top!) Thank you so much for an amazing experience!
