Just been up the Cable Cars again, and always such fun! Pity that my husband and I had to share a car on the way up. Would have liked to have gone up alone (especially because he is nervous of heights!), but the line was getting long and it was the best that the staff could do. Lovely views of... More

What a truly wonderful day out! The cable car ride is fun but it's when you get to the top that you can relax and enjoy the fabulous view over the Dam. The pizza restaurant at the top is delicious and an added bonus was when eight or so para gliders jumped from off the mountain! If ever you get... More

The aerial cableway at Hartbeespoort Dam is a must see attraction and even though I let my occasional fear of heights get the better of me, it was still worth it going up and seeing the spectacular views of Hartbeespoort Dam. Recommended attraction for all those staying in Hartbeespoort Dam and Magaliesberg! Fantastic views and definitely the highlight of my... More

This was a new discovery for me last year, even though we live so close. The cable car service was professional, clean and efficient. The views on the top were gorgeous. Great for kids too with a play area on top and restaurant. I seem to reall the restaurant service was a little lacking, though.

This was the highlight of our trip to Harbeespoort. My mother and I went for Mother's day and the she was amazed by the views from the top of the mountain. We had a wonderful time and even had desert on at the restaurant. The "little shop at the top" is a bit expensive since some things (toys and crafts)... More

This is well worth visiting. The cableway equipment is modem & feels very safe. Staff are helpful. There are 360° views at the top. We went on a day that wasn't great visibility & we could still see for miles & miles. There are bars & restaurants at the top. We only went to the bar, next time I would... More

Great day trip for all ages. Cableway cars look new, and views are beautiful. There are cafe options when you get to the top as bringing your own food is not permitted. There is a jungle gym as well as a grass area for kids. We had a great visit!

What a lovely experience! On this Saturday there were no queues and great weather. The cable cars are clean and not once did I feel unsafe. All the facilities are really good with a lot of attention to detail. We ate at the base restaurant and the food was tasty and the service good. The views are incredible from the... More

The Aerial cableway is no different from others cableways or ropeways around the world where they take you to a mountain in a cable car. The different thing here is the view you get from the top. It's an awesome 360 degree view which includes the nice view of the big Hartbeespoort lake. Options of paragliding and rock climbing are... More
