Directions to Lukafrica Riverside Chalets & Safaris

Take the N1 highway from Johannesburg and Pretoria and travel towards Polokwane. Once you have passed the Shell Ultra City garage on your left before Polokwane look out for the R71 Tzaneen turn off (it is a hairpin bend). Proceed with the road until you notice the stadium on your left, proceed straight until you reach the slipway turning to the left and at the robot turn right (R71 Magoebaskloof).

Continue onwards passing Moria and until you reach Haenertsburg. Approximately 1km after the stop street you can turn right and proceed to Tzaneen via the Georges Valley route or continue straight on via Magoebaskloof route but they are busy with roadworks there, so take the Georges Valley route to Tzaneen.

On entering Tzaneen you will see the Lifestyle Centre on your left and you will come to a robot, you proceed straight following the R71 towards Gravelotte and Phalaborwa. You will get another stop street at Tarentaalrand and you will see the Tzaneen Country Lodge on your right - proceed straight for +- 12km.

On your right hand side you will see a Viva garage. Proceed straight until you go over the Great Letaba River Bridge where you will get a stop street. Proceed forward for +-1km and take the turn off to the left ( R529 ) Towards the Eiland spa.

Please note do not take the first R529 turnoff on your left before the garage as this brings you on the other side of the river going to Giyani and you might get lost. You must go over the bridge after passing the Viva garage on your right.

Proceed for +-26km until you pass Miami Canners and you will see our brown entrance walls on your left. Welcome you have arrived at Lukafrica.
