In the 'hood, Rooi Els as a destination

Directions to Wonderlings B&B

from Cape Town and Cape Town International Airport:
Take the N2 highway east towards Somerset West. As you come past Somerset West do NOT take the first R44 off ramp to Broadway Blvd / Stellenbosch. Keep on the N2 and you will notice the Somerset Mall shopping centre on your right. Continue for 8km, past 4 traffic lights and a Shell service station on your right, to the turnoff marked "R44 Kleinmond / Gordon's Bay". Turn right and continue until you reach a T-junction. Then turn left (a sign indicates Rooi Els.) You are now on the most beautiful stretch of road and should allow time to enjoy it! Continue along the R44 coastal road for 21km until you reach the Rooi Els estuary. 500 metres beyond the bridge, as you go around the bend, turn left onto the dirt road. Follow the signs to Wonderlings B&B.

From Port Elizabeth and the Garden Route:
Travelling west along the N2 highway from Caledon to Cape Town, take offramp No. 92 to "Hermanus / Botrivier". Turn left on the R43 and continue towards Hermanus until you come to the R44, signposted "R44 Kleinmond". Turn right onto the R44. Enjoy the scenic drive to Kleinmond, past protea farms and the Arabella Country Estate golf course. After about 20km you will reach Kleinmond. Continue through the town and past Betty's Bay and Pringle Bay villages, for a further 27km. The road ascends gently, and when you come to the crest of the mountain, and the view of the sea below takes your breath away, you know you have reached Rooi Els! (Drivers, please keep your eyes on the road and reduce your speed to 60km/h!) Wonderlings B&B is on the right side of the road and is clearly signposted.
