Harties Ariel Cable way has been rennovated some time back now but the last time I visited it was very old and run down. I was very impressed with the revamped version. The restaurants are good, the toilets are very well maintained and cleaned regularly. The improved cable cars feel safe and provide a great view. The children playground at... More

This is also worth to try. Such a lovely view over the dam and Harties area. The cable cars are much smaller than those at Table Mountain but still enjoyably.

I last visited this place in the 90's. The difference is mind blowing. It has been completely re-built, the architecture so beautiful and very sympathetic to the environment. Brand new cable cars give a feeling of safety and the views to die for. Once on top the walks are stunning and the rest stops/bars etc pure quality. You can spend... More

Excellent definitely worth it! Have a drink at the lookout bar! Do everything on the top, the views are amazing and the quality of service is very good! Just be aware of the bees.

The cable car ride up is a little nerve wracking but quick. The views are beautiful. There are 2 restaurants up there with a lovely play area for the children. Interesting information plaques on the circular walk at the top of the mountain. Did I say that the views are to die for? Definitely Gauteng's answer to The Table Mountain... More

If you like to just have a quick breakaway from the craziness of the in Johannesburg then this is for you. We definitely need the GPS to find the place. If you are using GPS then I suggest you use the coordinates option as there is no proper address for the Aerial Cableway. Take some sunscreen along with you and... More

A truly great experience! If you don't mind a bit of a wait to get up the mountain (Unless you go off-peak) the views are truly beautiful! The pizza and cold beer up there is pretty good too!

First visit since the revamp, and wasn't disappointed. Once you get past the queues at the bottom - about 20 minutes - you are able to get into an intimate cable car that seats about 4 to 5. (Prefer that to the massive cabins in Cape Town, for example.) The views in all directions from the top are magnificent, and... More

We visited the cable way with three teenagers and we all enjoyed it. I thought it reasonably priced and the views beautiful. We were not impressed with the food on offer at the cable way itself and drive to Harties instead. Still, worth it!

Great experience. Excellent view. Tip: carry a light drymac in case a highveld storm decides to brew...shortened our stay (sad face)!
