You will find us +/- 1000m on the left-hand side after the KFC. Travelling up from Cape Town, you need to get on the N12 (WITBANK) highway on the outskirts of Johannesburg and then get on to the N17 Toll Road (ZAR3 Toll fee). Take the Rondebult/Mapleton off-ramp. Turn left at the robots at the top of the off-ramp and then right at the first set of robots. Travel along this road until the next set of robots where you turn left. Go down the road, past the 'Bokkie Park'. We are +/-400m from the 'Bokkie Park' on the right hand side of the road.From the Drakensberg, Durban or Transkei, take the Benoni/Heidelberg off-ramp off the N3.
