|Lions Head and Signal Hill look like a sphinx.|
During the 17th century when the Dutch found Cape Town they named this mountain Leeuwen Kop which in English is Lion’s Head. Signal Hill was first known as Leeuwen Staart meaning Lion’s Tail.
The 669m (2195ft) peak offers beautiful views overlooking the city of Cape Town, Sea Point, Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The mountain is adorned with the endemic flora known as Fynbos. A truly magnificent place to watch the sunset.

It is a great spot to go paragliding or hand gliding which is an adventurous activity for both people able bodied and disabled.
So if in the city of Cape Town be sure to have take in the view from one of the surrounding summits on the sphinx.
