Moves to kick-start Berg cable car project
May 20, 2016
The original plan to establish a cable car route to the top of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg range dates back several decades.

The proposed Drakensberg cable car route will also benefit neighbouring Lesotho.
This is according to Economic Development MEC Mike Mabuyakhulu who had been speaking at the Tourism Indaba breakfast currently underway at the Hilton Hotel in Durban.
