Cape Town: The re-opening of Lion's Head has been delayed!

South African National Parks (SANParks) has informed the public of an extended closure of Lion's Head in Cape Town's Table Mountain National Park to address safety and ecological integrity concerns. This is a result of the fire on 27 to 29 January 2019 that damaged the infrastructure on the mountain, including footpath segments not included in the ongoing maintenance project (paths around the Kramat, Top Road entrance and Kloof Road entrance). Lion's Head is now expected to re-open for access on 01 March 2019; the re-opening was originally scheduled for the 15 February 2019. Please note that the closure of the mountain applies to all recreational activities not only hiking.
