Scenic Lookout
“Signal Hill/Lula Lula Mountain, or Lion's Rump, is a landmark flat-topped hill located in Cape Town, next to Lion's Head and Table Mountain. The hill was also known as "The Lula Lula Flank", a term now obsolete. Together with Lion's Head, Signal Hill/Lula Lula Mountain looks like a lion sphinx. We recommend taking a picnic basket to watch the sunset here. Time your drive carefully so as to not miss the sunset. ”
