While the afternoon festivities put a jive into your step, a sunset swim at Mr. C Harties will soothe your spirit in a heated pool overlooking the calm dam water while you float towards the ledge of the pool. Water is calming and relaxing, especially after a day of golfing or outdoor activities. The area offers many possibilities for extreme outdoor fun from mountain biking, abseiling, canoeing, horse riding, waterski, and trail running.
There are yearly famous running and cycling events around the dam to participate in if you are into ultra sports. If extreme fitness is not for you and you enjoyed a day working on the deck, end your day with a sauna session before you dip into the pool.
Cocktails in the bushveld at sunset time is a must-do. The bar staff at Mr.C Harties has colorful cocktails to serve while you enjoy the sky turning orange and pink, casting beauty over the pool. If you have a personal favorite cocktail recipe, present it to the bar staff to make your unique concoction come to life. The light blue colored bar turns out color and refreshing favorites to put fizz and a bubble in your sunset spirit and drink. Sit around the pool while you let your feet dangle and splash in the water while watching the sky turn into midnight blue. The deck offers a spectacular view over the water to watch the sunset reflections and color change fill the sky.
Mr. C Harties is on the foothill of the Magaliesberg that presents beautiful photo opportunities for avid photographers to capture sunset and drone photos. There is a lawn that is ideal to launch a drone and fly over the pool to capture group pictures or turn your lens to the magic color display over the Yacht club and mountain top, capturing the bushveld warm sunset feeling. The dam wall is a hotspot for photographers to aim their lenses at the triumph designed arch. The road leading to the wall is scenic, winding its way onto the dam wall with beautiful views over the water and the wall releasing water into the river below. The town of Hartebeespoort Dam offers many photographic opportunities from the fun movie sets, diners, water activities, and architecture on your way towards the craft markets.
As the color display presents a colorful sky show, the fire is readying for the barbecue. The smell of boerewors and meat sizzling on the grill with a fresh drink in your hand, the pool to dip into, and the sunset sky to illuminate your evening sets the tone for a fun-filled music evening playing pinball and all the games on offer at Mr. C Harties. Summer weekends away with a pool splash, close friends, and a fire to cook on will liven your spirit and cement the bushveld experience at Mr.C Harties into your list of favorite weekends away.
