Hartbeespoort

3.4

Harties

Considered a gateway of the hartbees, a species of African antelope, the resort town of Hartbeespoort swarms with holiday homes around a popular arch-type dam. Unlike the nation's bustling capital down south, a vacation in Hartbeespoort allows tourists to unwind in a mellow environment filled with animal sanctuaries, safari routes, parks, and leisure resorts. Other novel attractions in Hartbeespoort include an ultra 50 km (31 mi) marathon course, the longest monocable way in Africa, and an abundance of boat and yacht clubs near the lake. The town also draws hot air balloon lovers, thanks to some of the world's best ballooning weather conditions and majestic views of the surrounding Magaliesberg mountain range. Hartbeespoort is in Madibeng. Plan your visit to Hartbeespoort and other destinations in South Africa using our South Africa trip itinerary planner.
