Look at the Table Mountain from across the bay and use a bit of imagination; then see that the peak to its right looks like a lion's head, connected by a body of land to a smaller conical peak, the lion's rump (known as Signal Hill). Signal Hill derived its name from its previous function as a semaphore post for communication with ships at sea. It is also home to the Noon Gun, a cannon that is still fired daily. Below the cannon is a tearoom with fantastic views and delicious traditional Cape Malay cuisine. The road to the 350-meter summit offers awesome views over both cityscape and seascapes. There is a car park and picnic site at the top and visitors can take a short walk along the ridge. A great venue to watch the sun sink into the Atlantic and then enjoy a slow drive back with the lights of the city spread out below. Take care at night, as muggings have taken place here.
My grandparents live in Cape town and when I go there, we always end up either driving past or going through it. Everyone is freindly. Also, one of the best parts about it is that it's ultra rare to get a traffic jam. I suggest that when you go to Cape Town, go to the City Centre.
