    Ride the only aerial cable car in all of South Africa and enjoy amazing views along the way. This Swiss-designed and installed gondola seats a maximum of 6 guests. Ascend to the top of the mountain in 6 minutes. As you travel upwards, you’ll pass above a nature reserve. Spot giraffe, zebra, and small antelope from your bird’s eye view. Once you reach the top, you’ll be able to choose from a number of restaurants. Have a drink at the Lookout Bar and sip as a cocktail as you marvel at the spectacular view of the eastern side of the region. Walk “The Dassie Walk,” a 1,200-meter walkway which circles the circumference of the mountain top. Stop at the informative waypoint along the way and learn about the surrounding area. Take the cable car back and return to the starting point.

    It was not my first time at the cable view ; however you guys need to look at talking to your Marshall’s to direct p poke accordingly.

What people are saying about Pretoria

The gondolos are clean and sanitized continously, the ride up and down is awesome, the scenery from atop the mountain is breathtaking. We found the staff very friendly and to top it all, the pizzas atop the mountain were the most delicious. We want to go again.

It was not my 1st time and every time I visit the place is excellent in service. So i had taken a friend from Durban and she enjoyed everything especially the fact that restuarant and bars were on mountain top.

The view is absolutely beautiful,good food and overall a good experience if you're looking to have a chilled day.

Excellent monitoring and enforcing Covid regulations. People are monitored to ensure everyone has a mask on

It was a great experience out of this world I definitely do it again
