Lions Head is easier than Table Mountain in that much of the hike is circular in nature. It does still demand a basic to moderate level of fitness and the ability to hold a moderate group pace over 3 hours or so of hiking. Aside from this, Lion’s Head requires a moderate head for heights and the ability to engage in minor rock scrambling.
The risk of outdoors activities, where social distancing is enforced, has been deemed by the WHO as being significantly less than indoor activities. Nonetheless, we place the highest value on our guests’ safety at all times. We walk in small, intimate groups, ensure safe walking distances and promote the use of hand sanitiser and the wearing of masks where necessary.
