Walk with elephants and enjoy a scenic beauty of the Magaliesberg Mountains
An Elephant Walk and Magaliesberg Day Safari is ideal to enjoy a little African wildlife and the beauty of one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. Only a one hour scenic drive northwest of Johannesburg and Pretoria is the Magaliesberg Mountains and Hartbeesport Dam making this the ideal day tour from Johannesburg – from the travel perspective that is.
The Go SAfari day safari tour from Johannesburg to walk with elephants and the Magaliesberg is structured to offer you the best of both worlds. Experience a ninety minute walk with three very tame elephants in their natural habitat watching them just walk and eat. You can hug them, scratch them, feed them, feel them, study them and get some amazing pictures. After your walk with the elephants we will go to a large African curio market and you will have time to shop and negotiate a good deal.
The recently opened Aerial Cableway is the next stop. This modern facility will take you safely to the top of the Magaliesberg Mountain where you will enjoy amazing views of the dam and on a clear day even see Johannesburg. There are restaurants where you can have lunch while enjoying the view. Make your way around the Dassie Loop where there are plaques to explain what you are looking at.
Fourteen hi-tech cable cars, built to carry six passengers at a time and able to transport up to 500 people per hour (round trip), are ready to give visitors a world-class aerial cableway experience. The new cable cars were supplied by a Swiss company and the new galvanized cabling was installed, and the cableway was fitted and re-engineered according to Canadian Standards Association specifications.
Touch-screen technology, auto cabin spacing and conveyor programming technology, as well as state-of-the-art cabin locators and switches, were all incorporated to take the cableway into the 21st century, and ensure a comfortable and safe visitor experience.
