At the top

The fun doesn’t begin and end with the cable car ride itself. A trip to the top of the mountain will quickly turn into a day of enjoyment away from the pressures of city life.

On top, you feel as if you are in another world, and there is plenty to enjoy in this small paradise.

Relax on the grass and admire the view while enjoying a picnic basket that has been packed for you. (Please note that no food or drinks may be brought to the cableway. Bookings for the Hero’s Grillhouse and Pizzeria at the bottom cable station and orders for picnic baskets can be placed via our banqueting manager:

There is a self-service express restaurant at the top of the cableway where you can buy light meals to enjoy on the terrace or at one of the viewing decks. You may also want to sip on a cocktail at the bar while admiring the view from the terrace.

If you have children, why not sit under the shade at one of the picnic tables and watch them play on the jungle gym in the Kidzone play area?

You can do some shopping at the Little Shop at the Top, or just sit back and enjoy nature, taking in the tranquillity and the calls of the birds. You may well be lucky enough to see some endangered vultures circling overhead, from the nearby vulture sanctuary.

To help visitors explore the mountain, the Harties Cableway has set out the 1km Dassie Loop walkway. Informative signs along the way explain points of interest that you can see from atop the mountain; on a clear day you can see the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg, most of Brits and even some of Pretoria.

We regret that no pets are allowed at the Harties Cableway.
