  Looking down on Camps Bay
by mcmash

Cape Town's own Sugarloaf Mountain, the "Lion's Head" is connected to the "Lion's Rump" (better known as "Signal Hill").
The Lion's Head summit is 669 meters above sea level and can only be reached by foot. The spiral pathway up it provides a breathtaking panoramic view of Cape Town and the Atlantic Seaboard.
The climb takes about 1 hour, provided that you are fit and not afraid of heights (some difficult passages lead over ladders and along metal chains). If you are lucky and the wind conditions are right, you can watch paragliders taking off towards Camps Bay.
