Newly renovated Cable car sightseeing experience in Hartbeespoortdam. Upgraded to a International standard. A gem that has been there for many years but needed upgrading a log time ago. From the moment you enter the grounds until you drive away was a wonderful experince! The management is clearly in control. We had a old couple that was 90 and 85.... More

Great attraction with some wonderful views of the Dam and rolling hills around Hartebeespoort. Must admit the price of the cableway was a bit surprising, as it almost the same price as the Table Mountain cableway, though admiteddly the views are also quite spectacular. Good restaurant at the top of the cableway as well, though be careful of the bees.... More

I had a great time here.There are very cool restaurants at the top and bottom. The view from the top is incredible. They also had a concert on the day so the entertainment was different(much appreciated!). Beware of bees though!

this is a must do when in Harties - or make it the reason it is worth the 1 hour drive from Johannesburg. World class and well managed. We went on a cloudy day with a storm approaching and it was spectacular. Paack your full camera gear, it would be worthh the trouble. I took these shot with my phone... More

Aerial cableway is a must to on any travellers list to Hartbeespoort. A bit pricey at R175 per adult, the view at the top is incredible. Lots of photo ops. I would have preferred a bit more history on the actual cableway. The cable cars were safe and modern.

Very well organized. The trip up is a bit pricey, but the snacks and drinks at the top are very reasonably priced. The cable cars seem very safe, and it's nice to know they have generator power (we experienced it in action). Will definitely go back on a clear day since it has an AWESOME view of North-West and Gauteng.

The view on top of the mountain was just incredible, I really enjoyed it though I think that it was a bit expensive but once you get to the top of the mountain and see the clouds hanging over the water and mountain it is just amazing. I would definitely recommend someone to go there. I won't go anytime soon... More

We visited this around 10 am on a Tuesday to find no queues and a car to ourselves. The trip to the top only takes a few minutes and is well worth it for the view, though it would be a shame if it wasn't! The view is every bit as spectacular as that from Table Mountain, though obviously somewhat... More

Whilst overpriced, the cableway is OK - overpriced sufficiently for me not to go again though! However, the bad experience is what you get once you get to the top - there are two food locations that you queue for, order, pay, and wait ( both use the same system ) - it took 75 minutes for three hamburgers!!
