Directions to EarthRise Mountain Lodge
Head towards Durban on the N3. Immediately after the Engen One-Stop and before the second toll plaza (Wilge Plaza) take the Villiers Suid off ramp. Turn right (you’re on the R26) and drive until you get to a T junction signed Vrede to your left and Frankfort to your right. Turn right. Pass Frankfort (just after passing Frankfort you cross a bridge and then turn left - it is signed Reitz R26). Pass Tweeling and Reitz, arriving at Bethlehem after about 120km. At Bethlehem go straight through the first set of big lights by the Pick'n Pay, and past the Engen garage. At the 4-way stop turn right. Go down past lots of car sales showrooms until you turn left into Commissioner Street at the Kentucky Fried Chicken (shortly after the large ABSA Bank and signed Fouriesburg and Loch Athlone). Head for Fouriesburg for approximately 40 kms. Pass the turn off for Fouriesburg. After a further approximately 22km you see a large, brown, information sign on the left, pointing to Nebo and Franshoek on the right. Turn right and follow the dirt road (it is the S385), across the railway tracks and over the hill to a 4-way junction, follow the Franshoek Lodge signs to the right; at the junction to Rustlers (just after crossing the stream) keep left, and the lodge is 2km further.
