Harties Cableway Experience


Activity Description

The fun doesn’t begin and end with the cable car ride itself. A trip to the top of the mountain will quickly turn into a day of enjoyment away from the pressures of city life.
On top, you feel as if you are in another world, and there is plenty to enjoy in this small paradise.
There is a self-service express restaurant at the top of the cableway where you can buy light meals to enjoy on the terrace or at one of the viewing decks. You may also want to sip on a cocktail at the bar while admiring the view from the terrace.
If you have children, why not sit under the shade at one of the picnic tables and watch them play on the jungle gym in the Kidzone play area?
You can do some shopping at the Little Shop at the Top, or just sit back and enjoy nature, taking in the tranquillity and the calls of the birds. You may well be lucky enough to see some endangered vultures circling overhead, from the nearby vulture sanctuary.
To help visitors explore the mountain, the Harties Cableway has set out the 1km Dassie Loop walkway. Informative signs along the way explain points of interest that you can see from atop the mountain; on a clear day you can see the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg, most of Brits and even some of Pretoria.

Customer Reviews

A beautiful experience it was. To think it was less than an hour from home and it was our first time visiting saddens me. I just wish there was more advertising about the place. - Nonkosi Macuba

The cableway was a wonderful family activity. We enjoyed taking our two girls (7 & 4) on an outing from Johannesburg. They loved the cable car and the pizza on top of the mountain. After spending some time at the top we were able to enjoy some ice cream at the lookout point. The scenery was beautiful and the view of the dam was fantastic from the top. The kids enjoyed the jungle gym at the top! We would definitely take family who are visiting us to experience the Harties Cableway in future. It was easy to book our tickets online and we could avoid any queues at the ticket office on the day. - Shirley Tudor

Exhilarating - Abraham Hlambelo

We had a lovely day! A Suggestion: we bought tickets online, but did not see we should still collect printed tickets. Maybe you can add a sentence in green online tomake people aware of that. - ARINA OPPERMAN

The experience was awesome, from the ride up & down to the view from the top of the mountain. The only down side is the time it took from placing an order to actually the receiving the food. It took nearly an hour. Otherwise, we would definitely take the ride again. - Rex Kanyika
