The cable-way is average. However it is well run. Average cost and fairly reliable. There is trash around but they do have cleaners who obviously have their times to clean up and perhaps we caught them in-between. Once up at the top of the mountain, the view was spectacular. We were in for a better treat as the local paragliders... More

Well run, modern cableway an hour or so from Jo'burg. Great views, nice place to while away a weekend day having a pizzza and a glass of wine while watching the paragliders set off from the mountain top and admiring the views.

The cableway was completely upgraded a few years back and is simply world-class! From the ticket sales right through to the queuing and the ride to the top, it is a clean and well run service. All facilities have been upgraded and the restaurants offer a variety of foods. There are three restaurants at the TOP! Once at the top... More

Really very well organised - lovely ride up and then the views are excellent - nice restaurants for a bite to eat or just to have a drink and take in the views. Super to watch the para- gliders take off...

The best part is sitting on top of the mountain, under a lapa, enjoying a scrumptious lunch, with a view to die for. The cable cars are so much bigger now, and feel very safe. It is an awesome trip out for kids. And some very interesting little shops too.

Finally made it out to the aerial cableway Hartbeespoort and so glad we did - had guests with us and the whole experience was impressive. We spent several hours at the top and were not at all bored. Took lots of photographs!

The upgrade due to proper owners seems to have done the trick. My son went with a friend and he loved it. It is safe and well organised with a breathtaking view from the top. Nice Sunday family event in Gauteng

The cableway has been upgraded and the views from the top are really good. Also entertaining to watch the paragliders jumping off the mountain. Make sure you watch the weather to ensure that the view is worth the trip.

I loved the building architecture and that everything is being looked after and clean. The trip can be a bit costly if you include a meal at the restaurant but it was worth the while. There is also a fast food section. There is not bank tellers up on the mountain side so make sure you have enough cash if... More
