Table Mountain National Park is a World Heritage Site and an ecologically sensitive area with plants and animals that occur nowhere else in the world. This globally unique and much-loved environment also offers some of South Africa's most amazing hiking experiences, with Lions Head being particularly popular.

SANParks urging all hikers to be especially careful and to keep their wits about them when it comes to safety. 

If you’re planning a hike keep the following in mind…

- Program emergency numbers in your cellphone before your hike.

SANparks urges you to keep the following in mind:

- Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints. Don't pick, break or trample any plants or flowers, or remove seeds, rocks or plants.
