Lion’s Head, Signal Hill, and The Noon Gun


View from Signal Hill

The Lion’s Head Walk is a short distance from my flat and the views from the top are incredible! To reach the hiking trail you drive up Buitengracht Road to Kloof Nek Road towards Table Mountain. The beginning of the hiking trail is at the top off of Signal Hill Road. There is a lookout point at the end of Signal Hill Road and if you take the walk around noon you will hear a bomb explode. Every day (except Sunday) the South African Navy fires their Noon Gun from Signal Hill lookout point. It’s a short hike but well worth it for the view. You could hike it every day and never get tired of the experience.
