Signal Hill is the smaller flat-topped hill that flanks the northern part of the city and extends from the lower slopes of another of Cape Town's icons - Lion's Head

Once the location for signal flags communicating weather warnings to ships visiting the bay, Signal Hill is also the home of the Noon Gun, which is still operated to this day by the South African Navy and South African Astronomical Observatory.

Both Lion's Head and Signal Hill are accessed by Signal Hill Road that ends at the Signal Hill parking lot, which has spectacular views of Sea Point and Table Bay. Our guide did warns us to be careful around the area, especially after hours and if it's deserted, due to incidents of violent crime and robberies.
