Silkaatsnek Nature Reserve

We are situated in the Hartbeespoort Dam area, which uses the slogan ‘’Close to the City, Out of this World’’ for many reasons. There is no other place in South Africa where you can find such a variety of top quality activities, accommodations and restaurants.

At only 45 minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria, Hartbeespoort (or Harties) is the true Adventure Capital of the North West with the Harties Cableway, Ziplining, Quadbiking, Boat Cruises (including the unique AirBoat Afrika!), Hot Air Ballooning, Monkey Sanctuary, the world-famous Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre, Arts & Craft Markets, Snake Park and many more. After a fun (and adrenaline?) filled day, there is a wide range of venues to choose from for a few drinks and something to eat. Whether you like top class fine dining, the always popular Burger & Chips or anything in between, Harties is the place to be!

Hartbeespoort is also the home of Tourism Friendly, a company that is Putting The Smile Back Into Tourism. Be on the lookout for their Smiley Face logo, because at the Tourism Friendly establishments you are guaranteed to experience true hospitality!
