Cape Town hikers were overjoyed when they heard that they could head for their beloved mountain again when Level 3 lockdown regulations kicked in on Monday.

South African National Parks (SANParks) announced that Table Mountain National Park would re-open on 1 June, with the exception of Cape Point and Boulders Beach.

Now, the popular trails on Lion's Head are out of bounds again, due to hikers' "non-compliance" with Level 3 rules.

The Lion's Head section of the Table Mountain National Park has been closed indefinitely, with immediate effect, says SANParks.

Signal Hill though, remains open.

The initial announcement did not specify which rules were breached on Lion's Head but in response to a question posted on Facebook, SANParks said the decision was due to "the nature of the trail and users not adhering to alert level 3 regulations re wearing masks and social distancing etc."
