Directions to Auberge du Cap
From Cape Town International Airport
From Airport grounds, follow signs indicating N2 Highway and Cape Town/Kaapstad. Travel along N2 highway following N2 signage all the way into Cape Town. As you travel along the N2, at a particular point signage indicates N2/EASTERN BLVRD/ CAPE TOWN NORTH/WATERFRONT – follow this sign and stay in middle lane. Closer to the city the signage would indicate COEN STEYDLER/WATERFRONT/SEA POINT, which you must follow to get to that intersection. (Do not take Strand Street, Cape Town turnoff as you drive along the N2 on the outskirts of the city)
The N2 ends at the first traffic light or robot (crossing Coen Steydler and Waterfront entrance ) with the Cullinan Hotel on the left opposite corner (your landmark). Keep travelling straight across the intersection, following the M62 CABLE WAY & CAMPS BAY signage from here onwards, which will take you along Buitengracht Road, which later becomes Kloof Nek Road. You will be travelling towards the highest cross-over point between Table Mountain (on the left) and Lions Head Mountain (on the right).
When you get to the cross-over point, with the intersection for Cable Way (left) and Lions Head (right), proceed to travel straight ahead and start descending down CAMPS BAY DRIVE on the Atlantic Seaboard side.
Start counting the roads on the left. (1st – Prima; 2nd – Ravensteyn; 3rd – Fiskaal; 4th - Rontree). Turn left into RONTREE AVENUE (SHELL Filling Station on the corner is your landmark). This road will start winding up the mountain. (Do not take a little off-shoot on right called Rontree Close). Just follow the road as it makes two long U-bends. The road becomes OUDEKRAAL, then HOOPOE, then at the top you will T-junction onto THERESA AVENUE (large white house in front of you as landmark).
Turn RIGHT into THERESA AVE and look for no. 77 on the left. The driveway is a little steep, so switch off your aircon, use first gear and take a running start from the opposite side of the road. The driveway takes a little curve to the left and another to the right, in front of the garages. Park at the top in front of the main entrance.
This is the part where you get out of your car and take it all in – the view is absolutely profound from here and will make the drive worth your while. You will not be disappointed!
