Kayak Tour and Lions Head Hike

Combo of Kayak Tour and Lion's Head Sunrise/Sunset Hike

Cape Town

Activity Description

The beauty of Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the comfort of our kayaks is unrivaled.

Our 2-hour Kayak Tour will take you along the stunning Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the V&A Waterfront, past the Green Point lighthouse, before cruising back to base.

Dolphins, seals, penguins, Sunfish and occasionally whales frequent our Cape Town waters and while we may not be lucky enough to encounter all this beautiful wildlife on every tour, we can assure you that all your senses will be tantalized.

Let’s go Kayaking …

Activity Description

Join our sunset Hike up Lion’s Head and make friends from around the world while soaking up Cape Town’s famous sunsets from the best vantage point possible! The hike up to the summit takes roughly 1.5 hours but passes many incredible viewpoints and the trail is very exciting in places! After enjoying the summit views and photo opportunities we will hike down to a quieter viewpoint to sip some hot tea/coffee and watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. Once the sun sets we hike safely back down with head torches as the city lights start to glow beneath us.

Customer Reviews

It was the most amazing experience. My guide Lance was fantastic. Very friendly and encouraging, he helped me every step of the way. His knowledge of South Africa was outstanding and he shared some very interesting facts along the way. Would definitely recommend climbing Lions Head the views from the top were awesome! - Vanessa Dineen


We booked the combi ticket for lions head sunrise tour and the kayak tour. Both were just amazing. Super friendly staff and helpful all the time. Can definitely recommend it! - David Baumann


The Lion's Head Sunrise hike was absolutely amazing. We set out in the dark to reach the summit just before sunrise and that was fantastic. Lance is really nice and ensured we reached the summit and came back without any scratch at every moment. Lance also happily took some photos at the spots well away from the main streams ones. All in all, highly recommended. - Ashwin Ramnawaj


Enjoyable hike up Lions Head, with a choice of routes depending on how good you are with heights. Some brilliant views both from the top and on the way up and down, of the city and also Table Mountain led by an experienced guide, who knew the spots for the best pictures. Would definitely recommend. - Richard Baguley


I booked this hike after doing the Table Mountain Hike. At this point, I was staying alone in Cape Town but was made to feel very welcome in the group. The route we took up Lion's Head was amazing, Lance was on hand to help us feel safe and to take photographs. Rather than staying at the top for sunset, we came down to a more quieter area which was so beautiful. Would highly recommend this hike, thanks Lance! - Jessicarr Moorhouse
