Travelling from Cape Town
You’ll be travelling on the N1 via the Du Toitskloof tunnel. Turn RIGHT to Rawsonville after the pass. Turn right @ the first Rawsonville turn off, to travel through the town and from there take the directions to Worcester/Villiersdorp. +- 10km after Rawsonville the road takes a sharp LEFT turn (before Nekkies resort) and 2km thereafter turn RIGHT on the R43 to Villiersdorp. After 10km take the Scherpenheuwel/Amathunzi turn-off to the LEFT (just past the Aan-de-Doorns Cellar on the right hand side – do NOT turn onto the Overhex road, it is the turnoff thereafter!) Travel 8km (over a low-water bridge) and turn LEFT at T-junction (Amathunzi sign). Another 5km and you'll find the Robertson / Amathunzi turn-off , turn RIGHT onto a gravel road, for 8km till the Amathunzi gates on the RIGHT. To the LODGE. Once through the gate continue straight to the lodge. (do not turn right to Boschfontein). Watch out for wild life!
During winter or after heavy rains: When the low-water bridge is flooded, ignore instructions 5,6&7!. Continue on the R43 to Villiersdorp, the road take you over an appropriate bridge across the Breede River. 5km after the bridge, turn LEFT at the Doornrivier turn-off. After 50m, turn LEFT again at the Scherpenheuwel turn-off. Initially this is a gravel road, but turn tar after a while. Continue with this road till you get to the Robertson/Amathunzi turn-off, turn RIGHT onto a gravel road. Start following instructions from nr. 8 above.
Travelling from Robertson
Take the road to Mc Greggor - over the railway line and then over the Breede River. After crossing the bridge turn Right and continue following the Amathunzi signs (direction Worcester/Villiersdorp) - 22km from Robertson. Safe travelling and see you there!
