View from the top of Table Mountain on Lion’s Head and Signal Hill.
This place is very good for hiking and active tourists. On the start and finish of the tour is available car parking therefore using car for this activity is best option. Probably the most popular time to go there is during full moon. The hill is 669 meters above sea level and you will enjoy amazing view and satisfaction of getting to the top.
If you are close to Lion’s head you should definitely visit Signal hill as well. The hill is famous for a Noon Gun which was used as a signal for ships anchored in the harbour. The Noon Gun is being presented every day at 12:00 sharp. The entrance is free and you can reach the place by car or hiking but it’s quite long way. And of course you will get great view on whole Cape Town and surroundings.
