Hikers, T-rex throw impromptu dance party on Lion’s Head

With the taps running ever drier in the city, it seems that a select number of Cape Town residents have finally lost their minds.

A group of fun-loving people decided that a great way to spend a Thursday morning would be to hike Lion’s Head and have a mild party at the summit.

Featuring an orchestrating human in a colourful leotard, an endangered tyrannosaurus rex, and a number of people Beyonce might think twice about hiring for her latest video, the top of the 600m peak was for but a brief moment a dancefloor.

Lion’s Head is one of the more popular hikes in Cape Town, known for its gorgeous snaps on Instagram and proximity to the city centre. It’s also apparently the perfect place to film a viral video.

After being posted on Facebook Thursday morning, the video has since gone viral, racking up over 115 000 views thus far, with over 1500 shares to boot.

Commenters loved it.

As the dry weather continues, we’ll probably see more people doing strange things across the city.

Have a look at the video below.
