Hartbeespoort Aerial Cableway
One of the most popular attractions in Hartbeespoort, besides the dam, is the Aerial Cableway which offers visitors panoramic views over the Magaliesberg, Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding areas. With beautiful facilities – such as restaurants, express food stalls and stunning seating areas and bomas – this is the ultimate family excursion. Kids can wander along the Dassie Loop walkway, where educational placards describe points of interest seen from the top, or play in the KidZone, while parents enjoy some much-needed rest.
Snake and Animal Park
Snuggled against the foot of the Magaliesburg on the eastern shore of the Hartbeespoort Dam, lies this most remarkable private Park. Offering live reptile shows, reptile viewing and photographic tours, the Snake and Animal Park also houses chimpanzees and a variety of cats. Guests can interact with certain animals. Visitors can also experience the essence of what makes Hartbeespoort Dam unique, the presence of animals, water lapping on stone walls and jetties, giant trees, exotic foliage and towering cliffs.
