If I would live in Cape town, this is where I would come for my morning exercise!
Climbing the Lion’s head takes maybe few hours, depending on how long time you spend on the top admiring the amazing views. Personally I highly recommend reserving plenty of time and possibly even bringing some light lunch with you to truly admire the views.
The first part of the climb is easy, but then it gets a bit tougher with couple of short ladders and tiny paths. But as long as you’re not terrified of heights you should be ok!
