Aerial Cableway at Hartbeespoort Dam

The recently opened Aerial Cableway is the next stop. This modern facility will take you safely to the top of the Magaliesberg Mountain where you will enjoy amazing views of the dam and on a clear day even see Johannesburg. There are restaurants where you can have lunch while enjoying the view. Make your way around the Dassie Loop where there are plaques to explain what you are looking at.

Fourteen hi-tech cable cars, built to carry six passengers at a time and able to transport up to 500 people per hour (round trip), are ready to give visitors a world-class aerial cableway experience. The new cable cars were supplied by a Swiss company and the new galvanized cabling was installed, and the cableway was fitted and re-engineered according to Canadian Standards Association specifications.

Touch-screen technology, auto cabin spacing and conveyor programming technology, as well as state-of-the-art cabin locators and switches, were all incorporated to take the cableway into the 21st century, and ensure a comfortable and safe visitor experience.

The Beautiful Magaliesberg

Part of the Magaliesberg is a World Heritage Site. The Magaliesberg mountain range is a geological gem. Its formation dates back billions of years making it one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. The highest point is 1 852m above sea level and the area supports a diverse range of fauna and flora, and offers amazing views.

This is a very popular day tour as it offers so much in one day. While it is a lot to take in, it is balanced and spaced out, giving you time to absorb the experience.
