If you ever at a loss for something to do on a Sunday, why not drive over to the quaint little village of Hartbeespoort. The Harties Cableway is just stunning and first class, following its recent upgrade.

When you are finished, why not do what we love to do and head over to the Tandoori Kitchen at the Chameleon Village nearby, for arguably the best butter chicken north of Ghazals.

Cableway  (316)

Remember to save a few bucks by buying your tickets online. Also, the venue is also weather permitting.

Caution: It is not mentioned on the website – but do take care if you are allergic to bee stings. There are quite a lot of bees at the top, near the pizza shack.

Find the Cableway atPlot 3, Melodie, Agricultural Holdings, Hartbeespoort.

Many people don’t realise how easy it is to emulate that smokey deliciousness of food usually prepared over an open fire.

I often cook curries or potjies on a gas cooker for the sake of convenience. You have to admit that gas is easy and clean if you want to take the kitchen outdoors.


My secret to getting that depth of flavour to a dish prepared on gas (or on the stove top for that matter) is to cup a piece of charcoal in some oven foil. I then add a teaspoon of ghee or cooking oil on the coal and let it float covered for about 30 seconds.


Voila!  Instant smokey goodness  🙂
