Cableway ride to the top of the Magaliesberg and Lesedi Cultural Village with a Private Guide

No need to go to Cape Town for a cable car ride!! The cable car ride to the top of the Magaliesberg mountains is breathtaking! The view from the top is magnificent! The Magaliesberg are among the oldest mountains in the world, almost 100 times older than Everest. They stretch for 120km from Bronkhorstspruit Dam east of Pretoria to Rustenburg in the west and separate the highveld grasslands to the south from the bushveld savannah in the north. The ancient geological structure of the Magaliesberg is evident for almost its entire length. Creation of these mountains began almost 2, 300 million years ago when Africa was part of what was then a large landmass called Gondawanaland and most of what is now known as the Transvaal was submerged under shallow water. After a light walk on the top, we make our way to Lesedi Cultural Village where we will experience 5 of the traditional African cultures/dances and finish off with lunch in the traditional restaurant.


Pickup at 07h30 at your hotel in Johannesburg then onto the cable way station to the top of the Magaliesberg mountains. A gentle walk, enjoy the spectacular view and a drink at the top then we leave for Lesedi Village. After the cultural tour and dancing we will have lunch at the traditional restaurant in the village and then return to your hotel in Johannesburg. If the cable way is not running due to weather conditions there are other activities to do in the area which can be discussed and a new cost will be worked out depending on what is decided.
