Lions Head is finally open to the public again but SANParks have a few rules so take note before rushing to get your Instagram hikes in.


Cape Town, South Africa (10 September 2020) – The Lions Head Parody account on Twitter took the news of the summit being opened again really well and we laughed out loud. It is a happy day that people can freely hike their favourite spots again.

We love when this account shares posts about Lions Head. Take a look at some of the previous stories we have shared before. Like when the account did a Father’s Day post or when the account Tweeted about the holidays.

It is important to note that not all hiking spots are open yet so keep checking with SANParks. Now that Lions Head is open again, it is important to note that there are a few rules in place so please take a look below.

“South African National Parks (SANParks) today announced that the Lions Head summit situated within the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) will reopen on the 9th of September 2020.”

The following protocols have been put in place:

  • Rangers will be positioned at various entry points to check that users are compliant with Covid 19 regulations stipulated by the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC).
  • Limitations of user numbers may be imposed at the sergeant ranger’s discretion.
  • Maintain social distancing by at least 1.5m at all times.
  • Users accessing the summit must wear their masks at all times. No mask no entry.
  • Users are to sanitize their hands before and after making use of the staples/ladder and or chain area of Lions Head.
  • Picnicking and gathering in social groups is not allowed.

“We encourage all users to adhere to the regulations imposed by the NCC and SANParks to avoid possible re-closure of the iconic summit.”
