Hike the Lion’s Head Trail
Table Mountain National Park, South Africa
This trail leads to one of best views of cityscapes in the world. The 2.5 mile round trip trek overlooking Cape Town is a popular, well-traveled hike with a hint of danger at the end. It takes just some skills to reach the summit due to a series of chains, metal rungs and ladders tacked into the cliff wall at the very end, but you absolutely do not want to fall. Completing the hike at night during a full moon has an extra appeal, and there is a safer route to the top for this purpose.
