Other transport

Directions from N7 and / or N1:

From the N7, about 5km prior to reaching the N1, is the board " N1 City/Stad". Proceed until on top of the bridge, change to the left lane, and do a full circle down towards the N1 (move one lane to your right) and proceed towards Cape Town. Soon after you will see the board "Cape Town or Kaapstad 10km". Change to the left lane as you will be taking the fly-over towards "Muizenberg/M3". Continue on the fly-over, and when you join the M5, go to the left lane as soon as you can.

Follow the M5 for a short distance. Don't take the first turnoff (left) towards the N2 or Airport. Proceed to the top of the bridge and then immediately change one lane to your left and do a full circle down towards the N2. Change one lane to your right going in the direction of Cape Town, go over a bridge (M5), underneath two bridges (close together) and underneath the third bridge the road will split. Turn to your left (Muizenberg/Kirstenbosch/ M3). This will put you onto De Waal Drive, which becomes Rhodes Drive. The University will be on your right with Rhodes Memorial a bit further on your right as well. Soon after, go over to the right hand lane, and at your first set of traffic lights, turn right (Board=Hout Bay/Kirstenbosch).

Drive past Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (on your right), and at the T-junction turn right again. Go uphill (there is a pedestrian crossing at the top on the turn - be careful!), and then downhill through all the turns, past Cecilia Forest (on your right) until you get to the traffic circle (roundabout) at Constantia Nek.

Go around the circle (avoid the first exit), and downhill towards Hout Bay (M63). The entrance to Houtkapperspoort is about 200m down the road, first entrance on your right.

As you enter the premises, please stop at the security boom and they will direct you to the office during office hours, or to your cottage if it is after office hours. Please note that the speed limit is 10kmh on the property.

Directions from Cape Town International Airport:

On exiting the airport grounds, follow the Cape Town signs. Drive over the bridge and immediately turn right towards and onto the freeway (N2) which will take you towards Cape Town.

Closer to Cape Town the road will start turning towards Table Mountain. You will drive over a bridge (the M5). Make sure you are in the left lane. Go over a bridge (M5), underneath two bridges (close together) and underneath the third bridge the road will split. Turn to your left (Muizenberg/Kirstenbosch/ M3). This will put you onto De Waal Drive, which becomes Rhodes Drive. The University will be on your right with Rhodes Memorial a bit further on your right as well. Soon after, go over to the right hand lane, and at your first set of traffic lights, turn right (Board=Hout Bay/Kirstenbosch).
