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

Lovely way to spend a lazy Sunday. The view from the top is brilliant and the pizza at restaurant at the top was very tasty. There is not enough seating and would suggest you come early or bring a blanket to sit on. The weather at the top is also colder and suggest you bring a jacket.

Ok, it's not the Table Mountain cableway, but the views are still quite spectacular. When we were there we were fortunate to see vultures rising on a thermal right in front of us.

An easy 45-minute drive from Pretoria. Spending the day with friends & 4 kids. Had a very nice breakfast at Bugatti's before going up the mountain. Great play area for the kids, area available to buy some cool drinks, ice cream etc. It was cooler on top with some wind. Take something warm for the kids for in case. We... More

Spent a couple of hours at the top enjoying the great views and watching the paragliders. Not sure why you can't take your own food & drinks, certainly not checked. Food at the top was not great, but not terrible either. Choose a clear day, it's all about the views.

Whole operation is very organised except for adifference between the last car down time on the board and what we were told. We went up quite late so didn't spend much time at the top but the views were great and there is space for the kids to let off steam.

Great family activity to do near Pretoria. Views you will find nowhere else in Gauteng. Have a beer or glass of wine whilst looking into the distance. Food options not that nice and geared towards the mass market. If you are looking for something nice and upmarket then do lunch in Hartbeespoort and then the cableway afterwards.
