We went on the cableway to celebrate our 28th Wedding anniversary and found all aspects of service to be efficient with the most modern equipment, plus adequate refreshments are available at the top and bottom. The view is the best anywhere within 200km of Johannesburg affording glimpses from the West Rand to Pretoria and Rustenberg and beyond. Signposting and safe... More

Updated cable cars, very efficient service and a pleasant ride to the top. Be warned, there are a few steps and once out on the "dassie" circuit - a short circular walk round the top - there is next to no shade. Most of the walk is on well maintained footpaths with stunning views over the dam and surrounding countryside.... More

What a beautiful view! Scary stuff =going up= if you've got height 'problems'. View & interisting people & pizza = worth it.

We took visitors from England to the Cableway on a quiet weekday. They loved the views, the bird life, the open spaces and the location for a light lunch. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful, even turning off the music when we pointed out we were the only visitors at that point in time and we'd prefer the natural... More

Facilities are excellent and each point of interest has a history of that specific area. So, if you are looking in the direction of Pelindaba, the board gives a brief history of the place. Restaurants are well equipped and not very expensive. Lovely little lookout points with a 360 degree path around the top of the mountain at the Aerial... More

Just 45 minutes from Sandton, is the Hartbeespoort Dam Cableway. It's not very well signposted, so use google maps to locate. It's recently been revamped and is worth the trip. It costs around £10 each for a 5 minute trip to the top of the ridge for breath taking views. There is a pizzeria with drinks available at the top... More

On a daytrip out of Jo-burg we visited here, and arrived just in time to get the last ride up (at 16.00 h). Wow, excellent views all around. Great thing to do when in the neighborhood. We were brought down already around 17.00 h, one hour is hardly sufficient to take in the scenery.

What could be better than a day-trip-possible high class jaunt up a mountainside? Absolutely beautiful setting, top notch organization and v slick service from the cableway itself, totally marred by below average catering on top. The embargo on taking anything up is valid, but seriously there could be way better options available - it opens at 9 and no breakfast... More

Great outing. Preferably in the morning before it gets to hot. Stunning views on a clear day. A bit pricy if you are a bigger family or group. Food is very over price for what you get up there.
