Important Notice: It is recommended that guests follow these directions instead of relying on a GPS as game fencing restricts access to certain roads in rural areas.

From Johannesburg: Take the N1 North Highway from Pretoria to Polokwane (Pietersburg). Keep on the N1 through the Carousel and Kranskop Tollgates. Travel a further 32 km on the N1. Take the Mookgopong (Naboomspruit) R101A offramp/exit (Route 289).

Drive 8 km to Mookgopong. Turn left at the 2nd set of traffic lights in the town centre (R520) into Nelson Mandela Road. Continue on the R520 for 11 km until you reach a T-junction. Turn left and continue for 500m and turn right at the Marken sign. Keep on the tar road for 24 km. The road becomes a gravel road.
