Loads of parking and when we went, a very short wait. The cars are clean and in good working order. The cable way lifts you up above the Hartebeespoort Dam and surrounding areas. At the top, you can take a stroll on the circular path which has really good signage indicating what you are looking out at. There are some... More

We went as a family of four and the experience was enjoyed by everyone. There was hardly a wait going up or down and it was something different and exciting to do. The view from the top is lovely. There are pathways to take a walk as well as restaurants to eat at and enjoy the view.

We were surprised at how expensive the tickets for the cableway were (R175 per adult) but it is definitely worth it for the beautiful view from the top. I would also recommend having a beer and a pizza at the bar/restaurant at the top. However, there are umbrellas but otherwise very little undercover space at the bar so if you... More

Very efficient and safe Cableway. You can ignore the chequered history of this place as the new management have really made it worth a visit. Yes it is quite pricey but the views are great and the experience worthwhile. It is also wheelchair and buggy friendly.

I was very impressed by all that the Cableway had to offer! Great views, safe parking, well sign-posted, clean modern bathrooms and lovely pathways and viewing areas. The little shop and restaurants are all very appealing. A good albeit little pricey, outing for families and couples!

Lovely way to spend time at Hartbeespoort. The cable cars are professionally run and the ride up is exciting and fun. The view from the top is spectacular. There is a lovely walking loop and lots of places to stop, sit and admire the scenery. It is worth a visit.

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!
