Hike Lion's Head Sunrise morning tour

North Beach, Durban

A visit to Cape Town is incomplete without a sunrise hike up Lion s Head as the trail circle up the mountain you are getting different views all along. The most iconic sight of Cape Town is from the summit of Lion's Head (669m) with an Incredible 360 degrees views. The best location to take photos of Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak, the Twelve Apostles Mountain range, Camps Bay and Clifton beaches. If you look towards the North you see Table Bay, Robben Island and the West Coast. Along the trail you will also see 2 paragliding launch sites. Early morning sunrise hike is recommended to beat the crowds and the summer heat. The fauna you may see are the Rock Hyrax (Dassie) small furry animal. You may spot lizards such as the black-girdled lizard, Cape skink and the Southern Rock Agama. On the lower section of the mountain there are still porcupines, as for the flora you will see our unique Cape Fynbos. The lower base of Lion's Head is Cape granite and the upper section sandstone.

Table Mountain Hike

North Beach, Durban

One of the most spectacular hikes up Table Mountain, aiming to depart around sunrise, seeing the sun flood into the city from behind the mountain is breathtaking Whilst seeming impossible, the route becomes adventurous, not too challenging and achievable. Views are initially of the North (front) of the Mountain, then along the 12 Apostle West face of the Mountain. Photography stops always accommodated, inexperienced hikers welcomed. Please be prepared for changing temperatures, a light weight waterproof jacket, fleece and base layer may all be required. A head torch is useful but not necessary You will be exposed to heights, and wide open expanses, this is not a hike for those with a fear of these Your guide will fill you in with details of the flora and surrounding history. The Descent down Platteklip gorge is rarely taken up, most guests opting for the Cable car, however if the Cable car is not running then the default is to hike down, please be prepared to hike down.

Richards Bay Shore Excursion: Isimangaliso Wetlands Safari & St Lucia Boat trip

We depart Richards Bay harbour and drive North to the Village of St Lucia. We embark on a visit to Cape Vidal. Cape Vidal falls within the Isimangaliso Wetlands Park (Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park) and is situated north-east of St Lucia. It has the best of both worlds with access to the eastern shores of Lake St Lucia where there is a variety of game including reedbuck, other antelope, hippos, crocodiles and buffalo, spectacular water, forest and grassland birds and the wonderful Indian Ocean shore line with its startling array of marine animals. After a light picnic lunch, we exit the park and enjoy a 2 hour cruise on Lake St Lucia, one of South Africa’s 10 World Heritage sites. Here we will have the opportunity to view crocodiles and hippos in their natural habitat. We return to the harbour in the late afternoon Please note that subject to boat cruise availability, the sequence of events may be changed around
