Signal Hill Adventures in Cape Town.

Signal Hill, also known colloquially as the lion’s rump, is the northernmost boundary of Table Mountain National Park and is a 350-meter promontory jutting out into the metropolitan area of Cape Town. It’s a landmark that played an important part in Cape Town’s maritime history as a place where signaling flags were hoisted for the benefit of incoming and anchoring ships. Now it is best known for the stunning views of the city (especially at night), and of Lions Head and Table Mountain that can be enjoyed from its summit. Many visitors go there to take iconic photos of Table Mountain, Robben Island, and the city.

The most popular thing to do on Signal Hill is without a doubt having a picnic.  This simple and affordable activity, sipping a drink and munching snacks while watching a fiery sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and then the magical sight of the city lights coming on, is a Cape Town tradition. But Signal Hill is also home to tandem paragliding. When the winds are right you can watch dozens of colorful paragliders take to the air and then swoop, float and swirl in the sky above Signal Hill and around Lions Head. Sometime later, in the Atlantic Seaboard suburb of Sea Point, you can see them touching down. Adventurous visitors can sign up for a spectacular tandem flight, a ride that may even take them past the striking sandstone cliffs of Lions Head or occasionally, over Table Mountain.
