I was keen to go up the mountain and get a panoramic view of the Hartsbeespoort area, and was not disappointed. The lady of the ticket counter was friendly and helpful, and the staff who assisted visitors into the cars were courteous, even when it came to shuffling people around to ensure better weight distribution. The ride up (and down,... More

Weekends are busier. At the top many wasps near trash bins. Cableway is not spectaculair if you've ever been skiing.

We went up the moment early, 9:30. All was good, price for cable car fair (hubby is a pensioner). We spent quite some time up there, reading the info plaques and the weather until we sat for a drink. Exorbitant prices.

This vist has been on my bucket list for a ling time. We really enjoyed seeing the whole Hartbeespoort area from the top. Because it was on a Monday, it was nice and peaceful. The food is also good.

I live in Hartbeespoort and have been to the top more than once. Really cool views and some nice venues too. On your birthday, you're allowed up for free (remember your ID or passport). Ultra safe and definitely worth the ticket.

This aerial cableway is a big attraction. It has been ntotally revamped and some of the previous cable cars are still on display. There are shops and a restaurant at the bottom. The cableway takes you right to the top of the mountain from where you can view the dam and surrounding area. There are plaques with interesting information about... More

Although not cheap, this experience is well worth the expense. The little cable cars are provide a fun ride with a lovely outlook over the Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding countryside. They only accommodate 6 people and we were fortunate to ride as a family, just the 3 of us. The staff, at both the bottom and the top, are friendly... More

Wonderful cableway in the Harties town itself. Affords one magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and dam. Nice restaurant up to serving delicious pizzas and cold beer; what more could one ask for? Great cableway, one doesn't feel unsafe in them like a few I have been on in the alps. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in... More

My family and I went to the Cableway in hartebeespoort dam. It was a lovely day out. The children had a ball. The view was amazing. Don't recommend to go on a overcast day though. You can pack a picnic basket and enjoy a relaxed day out. Will be back for sure. Money well worth it.
