Directions to Avian Leisure

From Cape Town International Airport
The drive from Cape Town International Airport to Simonís Town takes about 45 minutes. Follow the N2 towards Cape Town and then take the M3 to Muizenberg. At the end of the M3 motorway you can go either left (via Main Rd along the sea) or right (via Ou Kaapse Weg). Both routes will get you to Simonís Town, but the left hand route is the more straight forward one. So, turn left and at the next set of lights, turn right into Main Rd towards Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and on to Simonís Town. Continue for about 2 kms beyond the village past the golf course. Immediately after the Oatlands Holiday Accommodation sign, turn right into Dorries Drive. Follow the winding road for 1 km up the hill till you reach No. 88 on the RHS.
