Harties Cableway Experience

Hartbeespoortdam

Activity Description

Please note that the cable way will be closed for some routine maintenance until further notice.

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

Unfortunately this is the day the cable way broke down. We were taken down by 4x4 at around 6pm. Not the day we had in mind however rescue services and staff were a great help. Thanks. - Amy Smelting


What a lovely morning spent upon the mountain overlooking Hartebeestpoort. Friendly staff just added to the adventure. Thank you! - Bernadette Noeth


Amazing. Definitely coming back in the summer. I had been liaising with Charlene prior to my booking and she is nothing short of phenomenal. She ensured that I had as much information as I could possibly need, very transparent and a joy to have worked with. It was an incredible first time experience but it definitely was not the last. - Pontsho Moorosi


The best experience. - Selaelo Rasefate


The view, service and informational signs are very awesome. Would definitely recommend. - Carel van Heerden
