Hartbeespoort Dam is fast becoming the Riviera of choice for sea and beach starved Gauteng, situated only 20 minutes from Pretoria via the Platinum Highway, 30 minutes from Fourways Mall, and 45 minutes from the well known Sun City/Lost City. Location is one of the areas greatest natural advantages. Hartbeespoort Dam is steeped in history and the Heritage Route starts at the dam, going north to the Pilanesberg National Park and on to the Madikwe Game Reserve in the north. The area features its own, newly upgraded cable way to the top of the Ancient Magaliesberg Mountain and some of the best game reserves and game farms. A well known Snake and Reptile Park, the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre as well as Elephant, Monkey and Lion Parks are situated very close by. Also of interest is the Crocodile Ramble, an arts and craft route with day visitor and overnight facilities.
