Fun experience, worth a visit. For people like me that are afraid of heights takes some white knuckling to get through, but view from the top is really stunning and informative for those not familiar with the area. Only had a drink at one of the restaurants so can't comment on food but views are great

So glad that the cableway is up and running again and may I say they did a splendid job. All in all a very positive experience.

Took my then fiancé for his birthday. Ordered a picnic basket to enjoy at the top. What a lovely day. Great service, fantastic food, clean environment and FANTASTIC view over the dam and surrounds.

It's pricey but when you think about how much money and time has been put into the facilities it is worth it. The ride is really quick to the top and it gives you an opportunity to have great views of hartebeespoort. Restaurant is great, just make sure you aren't there when its busy otherwise you may wait awhile.

We were here before the upgrade and now post upgrade! Absolutely lovely, even the eateries on top!! Lovely walk around and accessible for those who have difficulties climbing stairs, steep in some places, but you can definitely access every part of the lovely views to see!!

The cableway attraction is well presented and enjoyable. Restaurants are sound. Nothing spectacular, but a good addition to all the other wonderful activities in this area.

What an Awsome way to spend a sunny day. Just 30 min drive from Joburg. Great little pizzeria at the top serving cold beer. Coupled with a stunning view of Harties makes for a great day out with friends, family or your significant other. Totally worth it.

I found this experience to be exceptional! The queue was quick, the whole area was beautiful and clean and the views were spectacular! At R160, this is a little expensive for the average South African but definitely a must-do for a nice day out! ;)
