To get to Lion’s Head in South Africa, you can take a taxi, a private car or a bus to the base of the mountain. The most common starting point for the hike is the Lion’s Head parking lot, which is located at the foot of the mountain on Signal Hill Road.
If you are in Cape Town, you can take a taxi or an Uber to the parking lot. If you are driving yourself, you can use GPS to navigate to the parking lot. Alternatively, you can take a bus or a minibus taxi to the nearby Kloof Nek Road and then walk to the start of the hike from there.
Once you arrive at the parking lot, you can start the hike by following the well-marked trail. The trail is relatively easy and doesn’t require any special equipment or experience. However, it’s important to wear comfortable hiking shoes and to bring plenty of water and sunscreen with you, as the hike can take a few hours and can be quite strenuous.
