Daybreak Lions Head Hike
DAYTOUR – R550 pp
3 TO 6 PAX R500PP MORE THAN 6 PAX R450PP
DURATION 2 TO 3 HOURS
Pick up 2 hours before sunrise at your Hotel.
Season depending: Winter at 06:00 and Summer 04:00.
Reason for this is, in the Northern part of Africa Sunrise is beautiful, but because of our mountains, daybreak is spectacular. Thatâs why we need to hike up the most hiked mountain in Africa called Lion’s Head in the dark, before daybreak.
Once at the top, you see and hear the city waking up. Yes, you can hear your heartbeat like someone is playing African drums next to you, because there is no noise pollution. The BEST is when you look up in the distance before sunrise, it looks like Picasso and Vincent van Gogh is painting in front of your eyes. Everything changes shape, first you think it’s clouds, then you realize it’s the mountain that’s slowly appearing out of the darkness. Then even better is when the clouds are underneath you, it looks like Cape Town is covered with a blanket.
I really hope you understand why we sometimes have to sacrifice to wake up early, to experience the beauty of NATURE.
