What people are saying about Pretoria

The gondolos are clean and sanitized continously, the ride up and down is awesome, the scenery from atop the mountain is breathtaking. We found the staff very friendly and to top it all, the pizzas atop the mountain were the most delicious. We want to go again.

It was not my 1st time and every time I visit the place is excellent in service. So i had taken a friend from Durban and she enjoyed everything especially the fact that restuarant and bars were on mountain top.

The view is absolutely beautiful,good food and overall a good experience if you're looking to have a chilled day.

Excellent monitoring and enforcing Covid regulations. People are monitored to ensure everyone has a mask on

It was a great experience out of this world I definitely do it again
