Hartbeespoort, fondly referred to as Harties by South Africans, is nestled in the Magaliesberg mountains and is less than an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. The short driving distance and beautiful surrounds make it a popular destination for a weekend getaway.

Harties Cableway is one of Hartbeespoort’s leading tourist attractions, welcoming approximately 15 000 guests every month. As an attraction, we plan to  revolutionise tourism in Harties and we’ve already made successful movements towards this goal.

Assisting guests with reservations and payments was first on our list, in order to reduce the amount of admin visitors have to go through when visiting attractions in Harties. This central reservation system, which doubles up as a tourist information centre, is manned by the staff at Harties Cableway.

Apart from our cableway, there are many other popular attractions in Harties that are well worth a visit.
