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

Thank you we had a wonderful time... such a stunning experience - Amanda plescia

We had a wonderful time and would recommend it to everyone - Deborah Behrnes

it is the first time I was there, and I must say, I was impressed. The kids I took there was part of a charity. I firmly believe that experiences last far longer than physical purchases and gifts, although it is also important in a child's life. I have given myself to give them fun and adventure so that they can experience the fun part as well and remember that and talk about it.

We, a family of adults and young children had a great experience on the Harties Cableway on a mild winter's day. The service was professional and safety aware, which suited us all. We had interesting chats with other passengers on both the up and down journeys which added to our experience. We will certainly bring other visitors to visit too. - Helen Williamson

Such a Gem right on our doorstep. I would definitely go back and cannot wait for out of town guests to show them this Gem of a place. - Pearl Matthews
