We will choose from a view exciting hiking routes depending on the fitness and technical hiking level of each guest. During the hike we will assess the comfort level of each guest to decide if we are going to take the easy, moderate or technical route up to the summit.

Kyle was a very hands on, relaxed and friendly guide, not only guiding us the way up but also explaining plants and other stuff along the way. Extra plus that he supported me in taking the more challenging path despite my fear of heights which felt really good to overcome 😊 thx & keep on rocking

I had a wonderful hike up Lions Head with Kyle. He was fun, engaging and very patiently waited for me even though I showed up 30 minutes late 😬. He was knowledgeable and patient and helpful even with strangers along the path. Would definitely recommend this experience to my friends and family.

At first I was hesitant to pay per person for a guided hike that most people do on their own but let me tell you I’m so glad I did! This is a great guided hike for people who aren’t strong hikers. I hiked with a co-guide Andre and he was so helpful and personable. The 3 hours up Lion’s Head flew by as we talked about our personal lives/stories. I initially wanted to opt out of the “chains and scrambling” part but with Andre’s help and guidance I was able to do it! (I’m terrified of heights!) Andre decreased my fears and increased my determination! Henk and his team were also extremely accommodating as the weather drastically changes every hour and so we had to cancel the first day and reschedule. It was a smooth process!

Went on a great like with Henk on a trail that only he and a few others seemed to know about. The hike had stellar views and was a good match with my fitness level (at the time ;).

Henk was a fantastic guide, who went above and beyond! His knowledge of lions head was awesome and he took us down a different route to avoid the crowds. He was so patient as I had to have lots of rests. He is very passionate about Cape Town so quiz him for any tips you need! Highly recommend.
