Signal Hill Sunset Picnic
A gourmet experience with a breathtaking backdrop
Signal Hill, with the distinctive shape of a lion’s rump, is one of the most famous spots in Cape Town for sundowners. Views from the 350 m high summit across the City Bowl and Table Bay are nothing short of spectacular. It’s a truly magnificent spot to sit peacefully and take it all in. Enjoy the twinkling city lights as the sun begins to set. It is also an excellent vantage point from which to admire the floodlights that light up the side of Table Mountain in the summer.
Signal Hill is also a prominent landmark from which the historic noon gun is fired, and forms the “lion’s body” for the adjacent Lion’s Head mountaintop. Signal Hill is named for its original use: the practice of flying signal flags to communicate with nearby ships, and later for the daily firing of the famous Noon Gun. The gun provides quite a startling introduction to Cape Town for first-time visitors. While locals simply check their watches, the gun’s distinctive boom frightens tourists and sends birds fluttering skywards.
Guests will arrive before sunset to enjoy the incredible views of the city with a glass of local bubbly in hand. As the sun slowly drops below the horizon, canapes are served, before your luxurious South African feast under the stars where visitors will sample local delicacies.
A lounge area of plush scattered carpets, comfortable cushions and sophisticated African decor offers guests a luxurious spot from which enjoy one of the most breathtaking views Cape Town has to offer.
