CAPE TOWN, DAY 6
The thing about Cape Town is the hiking is such little effort for such an incredible reward. I’ve said many a times that I’m not a hiker but I could easily do every hike in Cape Town no questions asked!
Myself and Ruben decided to go up to Lion’s Head again after our last trip was so rushed. Another friend, Vincente from Chile hadn’t done the hike yet so we thought we would show him the ropes or rather help carry him up!
The view at the top gets better and better but one of the reasons we decided to return was to visit Wally’s Cave. Wally’s Cave is just a small walk from the path where you can get some epic photos looking out to table mountain.
After ditching the boys I headed to Signal Hill for attempt number 2 of my paragliding. As you know I enjoy trying new experiences and Cape Town seems to tick of a million of these.
Anyway, I got strapped in and made the dreaded run off the edge of the cliff! It is one thing jumping out of a plan, it’s another jumping off a cliff! It is all weather dependent but jumping off Signal Hill takes you over the promenade of Sea Point.
It was a great experience but it didn’t cut it like a skydive or a bungy jump, cant wait for my next one!
If you want a decent beach in Cape Town then the options are endless. As we were staying in Green Point myself and Ruben decided to head over to Camps Bay and check out the beaches at Clifton before heading to the promenade in Camps Bay for a beer during sunset!
Lion’s Head, Paragliding and a beer during an African sunset, is there any better way to spend your last full day in South Africa?
Probably the best hike in Cape Town! Click to read
