The cableway for kids
With blissful summer days to look forward to, a trip to the Harties Cableway is an ideal family excursion.
Let your little one experience an exciting trip up Africa's longest mono-cableway. Our cable cars can seat up to six people, so the whole family can enjoy this fun adventure together. Bringing along a pram or a stroller? No problem – you are welcome to take fold-up equipment with you in the cable car.
Once you reach the top, there are a host of activities to enjoy. Does your little one have an inquisitive mind? Explore the mountain and take in the incredible views by taking a stroll along the Dassie Loop walkway. This 1km path wraps around the mountain and features educational placards detailing points of interest in the area. On a clear day, you might even be able to spot the Coca-Cola Dome all the way out in Northcliff. Keep an eye out for beautiful birds and cableway creatures, and make sure you bring along a camera!
When it's time for mom and dad to catch some sun and relax, our KidZone play area is sure to keep younger visitors entertained. The play area features a fun, wooden jungle gym with swings and plastic slides, with plenty of comfy benches and picnic tables nearby. Grab a meal or a snack from the self-service express restaurant for lunch, or lounge out on our lush green lawn overlooking the dam. We can even arrange to have a picnic basket waiting for you – a fantastic family treat your kids are sure to love!
Once you've soaked up the scenery and enjoyed a fun afternoon in the great outdoors, be sure to pop into the Little Shop at the Top or our curio shop at the bottom station. Both stock gifts, toys, clothes, activity books, games and Harties Cableway souveniers.
With so much to do and see, you're likely to want to make a day of it! See you at the top!
Please note: We regret that food and beverages are not allowed in the cable cars. Please arrange picnic baskets ahead of time, which we will prepare for you.
