Harties Cableway: perfect for year-end celebrations
Looking for a special venue to host your year-end function this November? Try something different and join us at Harties Cableway. Take a cable car ride to the top of the mountain to enjoy the views and your year-end party, either at our conference venue or one of our three viewing points, which can be booked for private functions.
Harties Cableway is located on the slopes of the majestic Magaliesberg mountains, close to the Hartbeespoort Dam. It is only an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, which makes it easily accessible.
The main attraction, the aerial cable cars, carry six passengers at a time and can transport up to 500 people an hour. The ride up offers amazing views, and once on top of the mountain you and your colleagues can enjoy a lovely picnic. Or you can enjoy a refreshing drink at the newly rebuilt Look Out Bar, where you can sip a creative cocktail while enjoying a beautiful view of the surrounding areas.
Looking for something a little more exhilarating? Bond with your colleagues by getting your hearts pumping at our Adventure Centre. With a range of activities, there’s something for everyone, from relatively easy hiking to rock climbing.
For a more toned-down event, try our award-winning conference venue, which can accommodate any function, from small groups of 10 up to 200 guests cocktail-style (the wraparound balcony offers stunning views). Whether you want a relaxed formal dinner or a more creative and lively party for your year-end outing, we can help you.
When you’re in Hartbeespoort, the fun doesn’t end at Harties Cableway – remember that the surrounding area has a collection of attractions for you to enjoy, too. Visit the Elephant Sanctuary and get to know some of these rescued giants. Here you can also walk with them and help feed them. The Bushbabies Monkey Sanctuary, which houses primates like capuchin monkeys and lemurs, is also definitely worth a visit.
Aside from taking pictures of your time at Harties Cableway, there is also a curio shop at the base and the Little Shop at the Top, where you can get some keepsakes. Choose from jewellery, ornaments, crafts and branded Harties Cableway merchandise. Hopefully these will remind you of your time here and encourage you to come back again soon.
Remember to make your booking online, which we’ve made even easier than before. Visits to the Elephant Sanctuary and Bushbabies can be made through the Harties Cableway website, too.
You can also book a Harties Cableway ticket as a Christmas gift for someone – a wonderful idea and something a little different. This is also great for companies that aren’t having year-end parties; giving colleagues tickets to the Harties Cableway is something special for the Christmas stocking.
